Unfortunately light wind conditions prevailed for most of Friday afternoon, so only one full heat was completed on Friday and it was the first women’s semi final as the second semi-final was cancelled just over halfway through it due to unsuitable wind conditions.
THERESE TAABBEL (DEN) / RITA ARNAUS (ESP) / PAULS NOVOTNA (CZ) / BRUNA KAJIYA (BRA)
Finishing on top was Spaniard Rita Arnaus who is finishing the second half of her 2019 season is fine style. She claimed her best result as runner-up in Mauritius and is looking to perhaps go one better than that here and in winning this semi-final she landed all seven of her tricks very well, the second heat in a row she achieved a ‘dry hair’ performance.
