Blah blah blah, pretty explanatory.
Medina, mourner etc.

After landing in Brazil, Medina was quick to strike back against Igarashi.
“Fooling around after winning is easy. Everyone respects each other on the circuit. I have won countless times against him and never played. I prefer to work in silence, do my own and concentrate… I watched the waves. That’s why I remembered my words, I wouldn’t speak without looking. By comparing my best waves and his two best, I won the round. I’m really sad… I don’t want this to shake me. I got huge support from Brazil, and it only makes me stronger. These sad days will pass and I will bring us even more pride. “
Medina added that he wanted to light up Tahiti at the Paris 2024 Games, with the surf part of the show taking place at Teahupoo.
“I hope to participate in the next Olympics in Tahiti, it’s a wave that I love. It is still a long time, three years, but my dream starts from now… ”
