Reigning world surfing champion Tyler Wright has revealed the severity of a battle with chronic fatigue after withdrawing from the season-ending event in Hawaii. The two-time world champion has not competed on tour since illness forced her out of the sixth of the 10 championship events at Jeffreys Bay in South Africa in July, and she still has no clear timeline for recovery.

While fellow Australian Steph Gilmore attempts to clinch a seventh world crown at Maui next week in a title duel with American Lakey Peterson, Wright will be left seeking a wildcard on the tour in 2019 if she is fit enough to compete by then.

“The WSL today announced that I’ve withdrawn from the final event of the year in Maui,” said Wright on Twitter. “Its been 5 months since influenza A prevented me from competing at J’Bay. Since then, I haven’t been able to regain full health and have been diagnosed with post viral syndrome.

“This means I’m tired [a lot], my body aches and my brain hurts – I’m really not much fun to be around! It took me awhile to understand what was going on. There’s no clear timeline for recovery but I’m doing what I can to get back to full physical and mental health.”
