LIFESAVING: Rebecca Creedy is intent on breaking through for a maiden race win in the Ironwoman Series this summer after a strong showing at the World Lifesaving Championships.

The Met Caloundra competitor is the Sunshine Coast Sports Federation Senior Sports Star of the Month for November after winning the world ironwoman title in the National Team Championships at the world titles in Adelaide.

And the 29-year-old is keen to continue that good form into the elite summer series which starts in Perth on December 23.

"I think things seem to be going my way at the moment," she said ahead of the Oceans 38 event at Dicky Beach this weekend.

"I'm getting some wins on the board now which is definitely a confidence booster coming into this series. I'm really looking forward to it," she said.

Creedy has competed in the series for a handful of seasons but is yet to snare a race victory.

"I think I'm definitely due for a win," she said. You've got to go in being positive and you've got to want it more than anyone else. That's definitely how I'm feeling this year."

A former Commonwealth Games swimmer, Creedy believes her lack of experience in surf races may have hindered her in recent campaigns.
