Fan­ning sees ‘ huge’ shark

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

MICK Fan­ning in­sists he feels safe at his beloved Jef­freys Bay de­spite two shark scares in three years.

The Aus­tralian and Gabriel Me­d­ina were plucked from the wa­ter while con­test­ing their J- Bay Open quar­ter- fi­nal be­cause of a three- me­tre great white shark in the line- up.

Fan­ning, who was at­tacked two years ago by a great white in the event fi­nal, was elim­i­nated by Brazil’s Me­d­ina when they re­turned to the wa­ter.

Fan­ning saw the footage for the first time when he was re­cap­ping the day’s ac­tion. “That is huge,” Fan­ning said. “Look at that thing, that thing is a beast, at least they saw this one. I am glad they got us out of the wa­ter.”
