Blue Dinosaur Ambassador and Australia's Captain Sally Fitzgibbons put on an incredible performance in the Women's Final, earning two waves in the 9-point range to take the Gold for her nation. The Title for Fitzgibbons comes a decade after she last won the WSG at the 2008 edition in Portugal.
"It is the biggest buzz to bring the Gold back to Australia!" said Fitzgibbons. "It's so meaningful to me to surf against my mates that I've known for as long as ten years. We all work so hard, so to share a heat with them wearing the green and gold and hoist the flag is amazing.
"It's really empowering to be a part of a competition with so many generations of women's surfing here in this event. Team Australia has built great momentum heading towards Tokyo 2020. I know that whoever represents Australia are going to do us proud."
Congrats Sal, fingers crossed you are wearing the Green & Gold in 2020!
