Surf­ing: Italo Fer­reira strug­gled in his round one heat at the Margaret River Pro. In tough scor­ing con­di­tions, World Surf League joint tour leader Fer­reira man­aged a to­tal of just 2.90 to fin­ish sec­ond be­hind Hawai­ian Se­bas­tian Zi­etz in heat nine of the open­ing round. Zi­etz, the 2016 event cham­pion, pro­gressed straight to the third round with his to­tal of 5.40. Fer­reira and Michael Ro­drigues, who man­aged only 2.23, will need to win their sud­den-death sec­ond round heats to avoid an early elim­i­na­tion.
