Portuguese Filipa Broeiro won the title of European champion of bodyboard of sub-18, in Eurosurf junior, that takes place until Sunday in the beach of Santa Cruz, in Torres Vedras.
In the final, the Ericeira bodyboarder won 14.67 points, with France’s Mathie Goujon (5.64), Spaniard Teresa Padilla (4.4) and Britain’s Gabrielle Taylor (2.43).
“I was already waiting for Filipa to do what she did, which is what we were all waiting for. It’s always good to start a great final to win and that motivates us to achieve the main reason that brought us here: to be European camp, “said Portuguese women’s bodyboarder Catarina Sousa.
The European junior championship runs until Sunday, on Santa Cruz beach, part of the Ocean Spirit program, in a competition in which Portugal stands for the collective title (surf, bodyboard and longboard) won in 2016 in Morocco.
This is the second time that this championship is being played in Portugal – the first edition in the national waters, in 1996, also ended with the victory of the Portuguese national team.
