Gabriel Medina vs Mick Fanning vs Kelly Slater

Billabong Pipe Masters: The final showdown. A world champion will be crowned. Three surfers are in the running to win surfing's most coveted prize. As it stands, Gabriel Medina (Brazil) is in first place with 56,550 points, 3-time world champion and reigning champion Mick Fanning is in second place with 53,100 points, and 11-time world champion Kelly Slater is in third place with 50,050 points. The ultimate showdown... who's going to be crowned champion?

Here are the scenarios:

If Medina finishes 2nd or better at the Billabong Pipe Masters, he will clinch the 2014 ASP World Title.

If Medina finishes 3rd at the Billabong Pipe Masters, Fanning will need to win the event and Slater will be out of contention.

If Medina finishes 5th at the Billabong Pipe Masters, Fanning will need to win the event and Slater will be out of contention.

If Medina finishes 9th at the Billabong Pipe Masters, Fanning will need to finish 2nd or better and Slater will be out of contention.

If Medina finishes 13th or 25th at the Billabong Pipe Masters, Fanning will need to finish 3rd to win or 5th to send the title race into a one-heat “surf-off” between himself and Medina.

If Medina finishes 13th or 25th at the Billabong Pipe Masters, Fanning will need to finish third or better, and Slater will need to win the event.
