In Women’s Skateboard Park, the teenagers once again ruled the competition - the field had an average age of just 18. Nine days after turning 13, Sky Brown dropped into her first run and dropped a frontside 540 as her last trick. She is the first woman to land it and the only woman who does that trick in competition. However, it was her third run that was her best, which included a frontside 360 box jump, frontside alleyoop 270 on the hip and a backside tailslide through the corner. 

19-year-old Mami Tezuka launched herself into silver medal position with her last run, where she stomped a frontside stalefish over the gap in run four, which she had never landed previously. 

17-year-old Encinitas native Bryce Wettstein rounded out the podium with bronze. All three riders earned their first X Games medals. 

Sky Brown will represent Great Britain and Bryce Wettstein will represent the USA in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics. 

 

Women's X-Games Park was insane today! Along with some great skating, some news was casually dropped in the broadcast stream.

We noticed that Sky wasn't riding her usual ALMOST board with her graphic on it and we were curious about that. We didn't have to wait too long for X-games announcer Lyn-Z Pastrana to share that Sky and Leticia Bufoni have teamed up and have started their own skateboard company, MONARCH. More news on that in the near future we presume.

 Enjoy the contest and some great photos below!


Shout out to GN4LW team rider Minna Stess for her awesome runs today!
