Congratulations Sally Fitzgibbons, on Winning the Womens Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach!
Last year, Sally faced 4-time World Champion Stephanie Gilmore in the semi-finals at Bells. Then she took out current World Champ Carissa Moore in the finals and captured her first WCT victory.
Today, Sally met Carissa Moore in the semi-finals at Bells, determined to ring that bell once again. She made it one step closer with her powerhouse turns and critical maneuvers in the pocket of the hard-to-read waves, taking out Carissa once again. Stephanie, just as fired up, took out rookie Tyler Wright in the semis.
Stephanie and Sally were neck and neck in the final, battling it out back and forth every minute. In the last few minutes, Sally took the lead after bettering her top scoring wave. Stephanie managed to catch one last wave, but was unable to top Sallys score. Sally Fitzgibbons wins the heat!
Congratulations Sally on your win at the 2012 Women’s Rip Curl Pro at Bells for the second year in a row!
Sally is well on her way to that world title!!
