Please join us in congratulating our very own @skybrown on winning GOLD in the Women’s Park at XGames 2022!
Sky, who just turned 14 this month, took the lead in her second run stomping back to back tricks, and after fracturing her skull in a crazy fall last year and working so hard to get back on top form – meaning this win really is something special.
Silver medalist Sakura Yosozumi had won gold at the most recent X Games event in China (the first time a Summer X Games has taken place in Japan) however, Sky did not compete at that event so yesterdays battle was a proper showdown of the top stars in skateboarding.
The competition also showcased the strength of the Japanese after so the success at their home Games – with FIVE of the 10 starters in the women’s park event from Japan.
Cocona Hiraki, who learned to skateboard with her mother after seeing skateboarding on TV, raised her game in the third run – but stayed in her bronze-medal position.
Congratulations to everyone who competed, you all smashed it and we are so proud to see the elevation of women’s skateboarding keep climbing higher and higher!
