The Oi Rio Pro Presented by Corona, Stop No. 8 on the World Surf League (WSL) 2022 Championship Tour (CT), Finals Day is ON with clean conditions and waves in the six-to-eight foot range. The competition will start at 8:35 a.m. (GMT-3) at Praia de Itaúna, Saquarema. The women’s Semifinals will start, followed by the men’s Semifinals, women’s Final, and men’s Final.

In her second consecutive Semifinal appearance, World No. 2 Johanne Defay (FRA) will be up in the first heat of the day against the rookie, Gabriela Bryan (HAW).

Current World No.1 Carissa Moore (HAW) will face a massive battle against the local favourite, Tatiana Weston-Webb (BRA). A Final finish or better for Bryan and Weston-Webb could have huge implications on the rankings, while Defay will be Moore’s biggest threat for the yellow jersey.

In the men’s competition, it will be an all-Brazilian matchup with Samuel Pupo (BRA) against World No. 4 Italo Ferreira (BRA) in the first Semifinal, and World No. 1 Filipe Toledo (BRA) against Yago Dora (BRA) in the second Semifinal. Despite already clinching the first spot in the WSL Final 5, Toledo will look to defend the event title in front of the passionate Brazilian crowds.
