2. Kelly Slater Wins His 10th ASP World Title

Just three days after the tragic passing of Andy Irons, Kelly Slater won his unprecedented 10th World Title in Puerto Rico. It was a bittersweet moment for the man who we believe is the greatest athlete ever. Andy and Kelly were sparring partners through the years and Irons was the one guy who could lay claim to consistently beating Slater. Devastated by the loss of his friend, Kelly dedicated his championship to Andy, stating, “It’s been a week of extremes for me. If it wasn’t for Andy (Irons) there is no way I’d be here in this position right now. I don’t really know what else to say, I’m a little overwhelmed right now. I want to dedicate this to Andy and to my family.”
