Today's elimination and finals from The Road to X-Games Live from Boise was amazing!  The girls were pushing harder than we've seen in the past.  Tricks were being made right during the final runs - things that eluded the women in practice came together to make for some powerful runs. It was Japan's Misugu Okamoto that lead the final 6 women into the finals, along with Bryce Wettstein, Poppy Starr Olsen, Kody Tamahana, Cocona Hiraki, and Kihana Ogawa.

At just 10 years old Cocoana from Japan will now be the youngest girl to compete at the Summer X-Games, passing Brighton Zeuner who secured an invite at age 11 in 2016 and won  her first gold on her 12th birthday in 2017 and snagged gold again in 2018.

Congrats to all the women for an unforgettable comp!
