Greg Emslie has won the O'Neill Cold Water Classic South Africa ahead of Australian, Dion Atkinson, continuing the sporting success of a nation well into 2010.
"Jordy (Smith) won the other two local events and now Iu2;019ve won the third," said Greg, hailing from East London, South Africa. "I was thinking to myself I beat Jordy in this event, now I canu2;019t let the guy down and lose the final. We've got to keep all the trophies at home, so Iu2;019m stoked I managed to do that."
The crowds flocked to Long Beach on the Cape Peninsula to witness a South African win on home soil for the first time as part of the O'Neill Cold Water Classic South Africa, cheering Gregu2;019s every wave from the shore.
