Stephanie Gilmore: the profile of a unique surfing champion
For many surfing fans, she is the greatest female surfer of all time.
Rosa Mendes was kicking some ass against two opponents when one of them had a peculiar idea.
In 2005, the Australian got a wildcard to compete at the Roxy Pro Gold Coast and won the event.
In December 2010, Stephanie was violently attacked outside her house by a mentally ill homeless man named Julius Fox.
And that has nothing to do with the fact that Italian swimmer Flavia Zoccari had to endure the shame of her swimming suit bursting open at the rear.
Her parents are Jeff and Tracy Gilmore.
When it comes to World Championships, it's also hard to get even close to her success as she has won the competition three times and was the runner-up in one.
So yeah, the same problem can have different outcomes.
