Nora Vasconcellos showing what scored her 1st place in last nights VPS World Championships



Brighton Zeuner was still on podium and took a well deserved 2nd place



Kisa Nakamura holding onto to 3rd place and landing on the podium again this year!

With rain falling down throughout the day, the contest kept getting pushed later and later - the girls had been sitting and waiting on rain delays for over 6 hours when they finally got a chance to drop in and compete for the VPS World Championships. And even with no practice time, it was still a battle to the finish.

Lizzie, Brighton, Nora, Kisa and Jordyn battled back and forth but Nora kept holding onto the lead. Young upstart, Grace Marhoefer from Florida - who is new on the circuit, put together a sweet run and scored an impressive 5th place - while competing against some of the best park skaters in the world. Jordyn Barratt found her last trick on the final wall to be elusive last night, and couldn't quite land it, but had she done so, the top 3 scores would have all been closer for sure.

It was a great contest to watch, congrats to all the girls who skated, and to The Boardr and Vans for once again putting on an epic event!
