Sally Fitzgibbons qualified for the ASP World Tour in 2008 faster than any man or woman before her. Now, Sally is barely an arm's length away from clutching the World Title - she finished No. 2 in the world in 2010 and 2011.
As a grom, she was already a contest machine. She became the youngest surfer to win an ASP Pro Junior event. Her path to the World Tour was so short that it set a historic record. "It was such an amazing feeling," she says. "I was one step closer to becoming a World Champion."
When she is not competing, Sally uses every free-surf and time off to keep improving. She trains and fine-tunes everything to make herself a better athlete. With each day, Sally approaches that goal, but she's holistic in her journey. "I want to live life to the fullest," she says. "I want to be World Champ and meet amazing people, enjoy all my opportunities, make my family proud so when I get to the top, I'll appreciate everything along the way."
