Mancora Peru Classic
Stop No. 6 of 8 on the ASP Women’s World Tour
Oct. 30 – Nov. 4, 2007
QUARTERFINALISTS DECIDED AT MANCORA PERU
MANCORA, Peru (Friday, Nov. 2, 2007)
– This morning saw the remaining two heats of Round
3 of the Mancora Peru Classic completed with Australian Amee
Donohoe and Peruvian Sofia Mulanovich proving victorious in
their respective matches.
The Quarterfinalists have now been decided
at the Mancora Peru Classic, event No. 6 of 8 on the 2007
ASP Women’s World Tour, and event organizers have opted
to hold off competition until tomorrow, when a projected swell
increase is forecast to hit.
Former ASP Women’s World Champion
Sofia Mulanovich netted the day’s high heat total of
a 14.67 out of a possible 20 for her explosive backhand approach,
and her Round 3 victory over French rookie Caroline Sarran
sees the Peruvian icon into the Quarterfinals.
“It’s great to have everyone
cheering when you’re in the water,” Mulanovich
said. “Even though we ran early today, there were still
many people that showed up and it makes everything very exciting.”
Currently rated No. 3 on the ASP Women’s
World Tour, a result in Mancora could see Mulanovich edge
closer to regaining the ASP Women’s World Title.
“Of course I would love to get
back in the race for the World Title, but I’m just trying
to take things heat by heat at the moment,” Mulanovich
said. “I feel like I can do well here because of my
experience, but all the girls are ripping. We will see what
Mulanovich will come up against Donohoe
following the Australian’s closely-fought victory over
compatriot Claire Bevilacqua in this morning’s Round
“I’ve got Sofia next and
I was thinking about that in the surf,” Donohoe said.
“It’s going to be an experience in itself with
all the people and the whole vibe is going to be pretty crazy.”
With only seven heats remaining in competition,
tomorrow could potentially see an inaugural Mancora Peru Classic
Champion crowned by the end of the day.
Event organizers and competitors will
convene at 7am tomorrow morning to assess conditions for a
possible 7:30am start.
