• SEMIFINALISTS DECIDED AT BILLABONG WOMEN’S RIO PRO

BARRA DA TIJUCA, Rio de Janeiro/Brazil (Saturday, May 12, 2012) - Semifinalists have been decided for the Billabong Women's Rio Pro, Stop No. 5 of 7 on the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour, as the world's best female surfers made the most of the tricky one-to-two foot (0.5 metre) waves on offer at the primary site of Barra da Tijuca.

Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS), 21, current No. 2 on the ASP Women’s WCT Rankings, got the best of a wave-starved heat this morning, tearing into select waves with precision and nailing one of the day’s highest heat totals of 16.00 out of 20 in Round 3.
