Skateboarder Poppy Starr Olsen Going Pro in 2016!
Wednesday, December 9, 2015
It's been all over the news in Australia this week - from TV to newspapers, and we're really excited about it here in the USA too! Poppy Starr Olsen has made the commitment to turn pro in January at the Vans Girls Combi Contest.
Poppy was the 2014 World Champion for under 14 girls, and she also holds the 2015 World Champion title for 15 and over girls, and now its time to move on up to the pro division.
When Poppy isn't training and competing, this awesome girl is a motivational speaker (did you see her TEDx talk?), does amazing art, creates jewelry, finds ways to give back to her community, and attends school.
We are really excited to hear this news and can't wait for the Vans comp to see Poppy rip!
