Iballa Ruano dreams that today is the day when he can get the world-class paddle surfing against his people. Gran Canaria is on its way to this in the final round of the World Championship that closes this afternoon at Las Canteras. Pozo Izquierdo, current leader of the event, opens the final rounds of the competition by measuring Alazne Aurrekoetxea in the quarterfinals.
The rider Basque deservedly earned the right to overcome the repechage sleeve, after beating Terrene Black. The Australian, who reached the semifinals in the test held in Long Beach -California-, this time was overtaken by the Spanish, who dominated from the beginning the 20 minutes that lasted the tie.
Nothing else to dive in the water was better adapted to the conditions of the waves that were in the area of La Cícer. In his first attempt to surf he scored 6.17 points and that allowed him to face, with relative calmness, the pairing. The athlete born in New South Wales was eating ground, but always had the right response from the Basque. Finally it surpassed it by 3,46 points of difference (10,74 to 7,2).
Shakira Westdorp and Anne Reikert became the other focus of the repechage manga held yesterday. Both reached the quarterfinals of the test held in Manhattan and one of them was going to worsen the result in Las Canteras.
Westdorp soon made it clear that when he is focused he is lethal, as he showed in his great performance at the ISA World Championship held recently in China. His maneuvers of turns gave him the necessary points to overcome his opponent widely. Nicole Pacelli awaits you in the penultimate round.
"It's been a very strong and very hard day out of the water, I've finally been able to catch some waves, I'm happy to be here in Gran Canaria, pans it very well with my friend Iballa. I hope to thank all the Canarians and the people who are here supporting me this year, in a very beautiful place where I am having a great time, "said Westdorp right after the water.
Gabriella Sztamfer gave the surprise to overcome Dominique Miller in the most even manga. Only 0.57 points separated her from Dominique Miller and one of the great title contenders, Izzi Gomez, is waiting for her; Meanwhile, Candice Appleby had enough talent to knock out Lara Claydo, so she will have the chance to meet Vania Olivier.
