Fanning wins surf event in J-Bay

NZN 16/07/2016

Mick Fanning has capped an extraordinary return to the scene of last year's shark attack, winning the World Surfing League event at Jeffreys Bay, South Africa.

Fanning fought off what was believed to be a great white shark in the contest final of 2015, eventually fleeing the water uninjured with fellow Australian Julian Wilson.

On Saturday Fanning beat Hawaiian John John Florence in the final after taking out good friend Wilson in the semi-final.
