(Long Beach, Calif.) June 16, 2019 -- It was an action-packed day of legendary skateboarding on the final day of Dew Tour and the first-ever global Olympic qualifying event in the U.S. for men’s and women’s skateboard street and park. While the morning began with overcast skies, the sun came out shining down on some of the sport’s most talented athletes, in time for them to take center stage during the four Final events. After beginning on Wednesday with more than 300 skaters representing 46 different countries, only 32 athletes remained today, ready to throw down their best runs for a chance to take the Dew Tour win and valuable points for the 2020 Olympic Games.

Starting the day off was Women’s Street Finals, with the top eight from the week, set to go head-to-head. The skaters had two runs, plus five individual tricks, with their highest four scores counting. Taking a victory run on her final trick was 19-year-old Pamela Rosa (BRA), who had the highest total combined score of the day: a 21.40 out of possible 40.00. Rosa impressed the judges with tricks including a backside lipslide down the Boost Mobile rail, a frontside Smith grind down Boost Mobile rail and frontside nosegrind down the Hubba, securing the first place podium spot and back-to-back Dew Tour titles.

“I am so stoked to win again,” said Rosa. “I can’t believe it. This is the best day and I am so happy I was able to land the tricks I wanted.”

After pushing through an ankle injury, Leticia Bufoni (BRA) locked in a second place finish on her last trick, finishing with a 19.00, and Candy Jacobs (NED) finished up in third with a 17.90 with her first-ever Dew Tour podium.

Up next, eight more ladies took to the Park Finals, showcasing their talents in a best-of-three-run format. After an incredible display of technical skating and pushing the boundaries of progression, 12-year-old Misugu Okamoto (JPN) finished in the top spot, with a run complete with McTwist in the deep of pool, kickflip body jar to score a 63.16. Though she only started skating four years ago, Okamoto is already looking like a definite one to watch on the path to Tokyo 2020.

“It hasn’t hit me yet,” Okamoto said. “It doesn’t feel like I’m in the number one spot. I can’t believe it. I feel very lucky.”

Second place honors went to Lizzie Armanto (FIN) with a 55.00, and third to Kokona Hiraki (JPN) with a 53.06.
