The women were ruling the vert ramp in Nanjing, China during the Vert World Championships yesterday. These ladies made history as this was the first FIRS and IOC event for skateboarders since the IOC announced that park

& street skateboarding would be part of the 2020 Olympics. Even though vert is not slated as an Olympic discipline, FIRS and the IOC included it as part of the 2017 World Games this year.

Congrats to all the girls who flew out to China, competed and tried out this new "team" system - very different than how the girls normally train, travel and compete, but it is the standard as we move forward to the 2020 Olympics.
