It's been 7 years since Hanna Zanzi has really competed, but today she showed she is back for good when she blazed through a field of top contenders on the women's pro skate circuit to take 1st place at the Vans Park series in Huntington Beach. This is like nothing we have ever seen, she came in, skated hard and fast, made drops and tricks that seemed impossible at times, and smiled her entire way through each run. Even with the pressure on, it was just like another day at the park for Hanna and she seriously KILLED it!
“This means the world to me. I skate every day and I skate my heart out. I skate so I can compete and so I can motivate all the other people out there. I’m back, and I’m so stoked.”
–Hanna Zanzi, First Place Winner Vans Park Series Women’s Global Qualifier
Lizzie Armanto looked solid and cool as always, skating her way into second place. 17 year old Jordyn Barratt, who just turned pro earlier this year, has been on a roll - starting with her Bronze medal at the X-Games in Austin, to 2nd place last weekend at Supergirl Pro, to a big 3rd place finish in a tough group of skaters today.
Looks like the finals in Sweden are going to be amazing to watch!
