Silvana Lima Wins Inaugural Sydney Internationl Women's Pro

surfing extremely well and it was definitely a tough battle.” Keely Andrew (Sunshine Coast, Qld/AUS) cemented her position on the 2017 WSL Championship Tour, making the semi-finals. Andrew took a narrow victory ahead of fellow potential qualifier Aleesa Quizon (HAW) in the quarterfinals, claiming the victory by a 0.27 margin. Andrew has experienced decent results in Cronulla previously, notching up two runner-up finishes in WSL Pro Junior events in 2013 and 2014. “I knew I had to get a pretty solid result here to solidify my position on tour, so to come here and do it feels incredible,” said Andrew. “I think I’ve surfed more with Aleesa than anyone else this year, so there was a little bit of pressure, but we were both chasing the same goal and both know what we needed to do. The waves here are similar to the conditions we get at home, so it’s probably why I’ve had a few good results here in the past.” Bronte Macaulay (Margaret River, WA/AUS) can look forward to appearing on the 2017 WSL Championship Tour, thanks to a stellar performance at the Sydney International Women’s Pro as well as a handful of decent results over the course of the 2016 QS series. Despite being eliminated from the event in the quarterfinals by Anderson, Macaulay is walking away from the event with her head held high and is looking forward to putting on her first full year on the 2017 Championship Tour. “As soon as you lose, you’re bummed, but overall I’m happy with this result. I wanted to make the quarters and to do that feels great,” said Macaulay. “This result was crucial as the points are really tight between a lot of surfers. I think it’ll all begin to sink in for me once I get home and the event has wrapped up.” For more information and images of the event go to www.WorldSurfLeague.com and the WSL app .]]>
