Namotu Island, Fiji (Thursday, June 4, 2015) Dimity Stoyle (AUS), Lakey Peterson (USA), Bianca Buitendag (ZAF), Sage Erickson (USA), Laura Enever (AUS) - Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS) won the fifth stop on the 2015 WSL Championship Tour (CT), the Fiji Women’s Pro, in challenging and sizeable surf at Cloudbreak. Fitzgibbons defeated Bianca Buitendag (ZAF) in the Final after a day of big upsets which saw the world’s best female surfers battle one another in solid eight-to-10-foot (3 - 3.5 metres) waves at the remote coral reef.<br />
 <br />
Today’s victory was Fitzgibbons’ first of the year and the ninth elite CT win of her career. The result sees the Australian move up three places to third on the Jeep Leaderboard, putting her firmly back in the world title race. The 2014 event winner was able to defend her title, claiming back-to-back wins in Fiji despite suffering a perforated eardrum in Round 2.<br />
 Today is Buitendag’s second Final appearance of 2015, after a match-up with Courtney Conlogue (USA) in Rio, and the third of her CT career. The South African earns 8,000 points for the runner-up result and jumps up three places on the Jeep Leaderboard to 6th.<br />
