Shark Apparently Attempts to Rescue Fanning During Quarterfinals

Mick Fanning was having a rough go of things during his Corona Open J-Bay Quarterfinal match with Gabriel Medina when an old friend of his showed up to give him a breather. While we can't be sure that this is the same shark that decided to rudely interrupt the J-Bay Final in 2015, giving Fanning the scare of his life, we'd like to think so. Perhaps he was trying to make amends? But in all seriousness, this shark was being tracked by the rescue crew for quite some time. Jeffreys Bay is a freeway for all sorts of fish, some a little scarier than others. Per protocol, the safety team halted competition as soon as this guy got too close.
