Aussie rider Sally Fitzgibbons has taken out the Billabong Rio Pro, the fifth stop on the 2012 ASP Women’s World Championship Tour series, beating Hawaiian Coco Ho in the finals yesterday. With just minutes remaining Fitzgibbons finished with a lefthander on her backside, scoring 7.93 out of 10 to claim the win. The young Australian’s triumph closes the gap between her and countrywomen Stephanie Gilmore in the hunt for the 2012 ASP Women’s World Title heading into the final two events of the season.
