Mulanovich advances in Mancora Peru Classic

Peruvian surfing sensation Sofia Mulanovich advanced to the quarterfinals at the Mancora Peru Classic today after defeating French rookie Caroline Sarran. Mulanovich’s ¨explosive backhand approach¨ earned her the day’s high heat total of 14.67 out of 20. The former ASP Women’s World Champion is joined in the quarterfinals by Brazilian Silvana Lima and six Australians, including current ratings leader Stephanie Gilmore.

Mulanovich has enjoyed strong support from her compatriots as she tries to edge closer to regaining the ASP Women’s World Title. ¨It’s great to have everyone cheering when you’re in the water. Even though we ran early today, there were still many people that showed up and it makes everything very exciting¨ says Mulanovich.

The Mancora Peru Classic features the top female surfers in the world and is event six of eight on the 2007 ASP Women’s World Tour. Located in northern Peru, Mancora holds waves up to 2.5 meter and has a consistent left-hand point break. The event began on October 30 and is scheduled until November 4. However, with seven heats remaining, a Mancora Peru Classic Champion could be crowned by the end of tomorrow.
