X-Games Qualifiers - Updated List With All 20 Women's Skateboard Park Athletes.

Monday, April 16, 2018

X-Games has updated the list of the women's skateboard park invited athletes, and there are a few new faces on it! This year the newcomers to qualifiers are;

Kisa Nakamura
Grace Marhoefer
Sabre Norris
Kody Tamanaha
Sakura Yosozumi

This will be the first time we've seen Sabre Norris compete here in the USA, and after what we saw from her at Bowl-A-Rama in Bondi - including 540's that were SO dialed in -  it will be interesting to see what tricks she throws down in park.

Skateboard Park is the discipline going to the Olympics in 2020 (along with Street)  so that is the event all these girls - who normally skate bowls/vert - need to focus on mastering - if making the Olympic team is on their agenda.

Road to X: Boise Qualifier, taking place June 15 - 16 at Rhodes Skate Park. The Park events serve as an official qualifying event for the X Games Minneapolis Park competitions.
The top four Women’s Skateboard athletes, not already invited, will qualify into the X Games Minneapolis Park competition.


Here are the girls who received invites to Boise, Idaho for X-Games qualifiers.

Female Athletes to watch include:

* Lizzie Armanto (Santa Monica, California) – The first female skater to be featured on the cover of Transworld Skateboarding and the first female in 24 years to land a Thrasher cover, Armanto turned pro with Tony Hawk’s Birdhouse team in 2017. Armanto is a two-time X Games Skateboard Park medalist with gold and silver in three appearances.

* Nicole Hause (Stillwater, Minnesota) – After narrowly missing the X Games Minneapolis podium with a fourth place finish in Skateboard Park 2017, Hause is on fire this season. She will come into Boise hot off wins at the Vans Combi and Vert Attack competitions.
