Peru’s Mulanovich wins Roxy Pro Hawaii

Peru’s Sofia Mulanovich has won the Roxy Pro Hawaii at Sunset beach today, event number seven of eight on the 2007 ASP Women’s World Tour. The victory is her second on the 2007 tour and her first ASP World Tour win in Hawaii. With one event left, Mulanovich trails ratings leader Stephanie Gilmore by just 101 points.

¨It’s pretty amazing, I really never thought of a World Title coming here¨ Mulanovich told the Association of Surfing Professionals, which covered the event on its Web page. ¨I Just wanted to have fun, surf wave by wave, and just have a good contest. But now it’s on, it’s so on!¨ Mulanovich finished the final with 13.73 points to defeat second-place Amee Donohoe’s.

Australian rookie and current ratings leader Stephanie Gilmore finished ninth. ¨Yeah, it’s disappointing but I just had a bad heat, I got caught on the inside a few times,¨ Gilmore said.

Gilmore’s ninth place finish has allowed Mulanovich and Brazil’s Silvana Lima to gain considerable ground for the 2007 ASP Women’s World Title. ¨It will keep it interesting. It’s definitely going to be a hard task to win the World Title, both Sofia and Silvana are closing in on the gap extremely fast¨ said Gilmore.

The last event of the 2007 ASP Women’s World Tour is the Billabong Pro in Maui from December 8 – 20.
