Mediocrity does have its benefits... although we can't think of a specific example, so we're going to distract you with this picture of Gabby spraying champagne in Mick Fanning's face. At least we think it's Mick... but maybe not? We can't see his face, maybe that's you getting showered with victory bubbles? Maybe they spelt your name wrong on the cheque? Maybe you are a champion after all? (WSL)

This easter Mick Fanning will attack the Bells bowl one last time. And although his old mate Kelly Slater is out for the event with a bung hoof, and although we are guaranteed not to see a repeat of the incredible 2012 Bells Final (one of their all-time match ups, and quite possibly the best Bells final ever), there is certainly no love lost between these champions, in a future ripe with possibility.
