Vinderen af KIA Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup 2013, Marcilio “Brawzinho” Browne, var stadig i chok mandag efter hans overraskende sejr over den dobbelte verdensmester, Philip Köster om søndagen. Browne var den fjerde vinder i de fire år world cup’en har været afviklet i Klitmøller.
“I’m so surprised, I don’t really know what to say I can’t believe it. Philip is such a machine, I have so much respect for his sailing and he’s been dominating so hard that for me just having the chance to win here was unbelievable.”
“I really thought I didn’t win, because I didn’t see him sailing and I was so happy for second,” “For me to win it is unbelievable, especially in conditions like this. I never got better than ninth here. At some points I was like; ‘man, maybe I should try to get a starboard tack jump’ because it so onshore but I couldn’t quite get the speed. I got really angry but I’m pleased I got one (big double forward jump, which sealed the victory). I couldn’t see Philip and then I thought it is hard out here so maybe he’s finding it hard too, so I just had to get some points on the board and hope.”
“For me it’s my childhood dream, I never thought this would happen,” udtalte den 24-årige brasilianer tidligere idag, “Sometimes I thought I was wasting my time. It felt like in this last couple of years I had some close heats that I lost.”
Idag er han nok glad for at han kørte på og nu kan kalde sig vinder af KIA Cold Hawaii ASP World Cup 2013 og pt. ligger på en samlet 3. plads på world touren.
