Sakura's winning run!


Shanghai, CHINA (May 18, 2019) – The next generation of park terrain icons have stepped forth into the light and the kids are alright. Vans Park Series named  17-year-old Sakura Yosozumi (JPN) the winner of the VPS Women's Shanghai stop. Showcasing a remarkable compilation of rising stars and emerging international talent, the VPS Shanghai event gave way for the most exciting contenders and tour challengers to prove their medal and shift the narrative for the 2019 season. Yosozumi emerged guns blazing, effortlessly landing a variety of technical tricks at every wall she could find. Her execution of a difficult backside noseblunt revert in the last seconds of her winning run was the true stunner, and without a doubt sealed the win.

On the women’s podium, Japan’s 18-year-old Kisa Nakamura placed 2nd, having made an incredible comeback final run despite an injury, and the unstoppable Yndiara Asp in 3rd, whose speed and power are proof of her consistent podium record.

Congrats to all the ladies for an incredible contest!
