Guess who has done it again!?!?
That’s right…5x ASP Women’s World Tour Champion & ROXY team rider, Stephanie Gilmore was voted #1 on ESPN’s list of the top 50 female athletes in action sports!
Stephanie Gilmore came out swinging in 2014. After a lackluster, injury-plagued season that saw her slide down the ASP ratings to an uncharacteristic fifth in 2013, Stephanie proved she’s just as much a competitive threat as ever, dominating the ROXY Pro Gold Coast to take the first event of the new year. She is currently tied for 1st place on the Women’s World Championship Tour with Carissa Moore.
Transcending surfing, Gilmore is also an ESPY winner, as well as a Laureus World Sports Award recipient.
Roxy stands out as the true heart of the mountain and the wave, with 3 athletes clenching positions in ESPN’s top 50. Olympic gold medalist snowboarder Torah Bright was ranked #9 and Sally Fitzgibbons, an ASP world championship contender, rounded out the list at #31.
Congrats to Stephanie, Torah and Sally on this incredible achievement for women in action sports! Check out ESPN’s full list of the top female action sports athletes HERE.
