This 9-Year-Old Skateboarder Is Trying To Make The 2020 Olympics
This nine-year-old is the world’s youngest pro skater. Sky Brown got her first skateboard when she was four. By the time she was seven, she had her first sponsorship. These days, she’s doing insane tricks like jumping off buses, and perfecting tricks no other women have done.
Don’t let her four-foot frame fool you, in the past year, she’s crushed competitions in the UK, Sweden and Singapore. Her next big goal is to skate for team Japan at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, where skateboarding will debut as an Olympic event.
“I would like to go to the Olympics while I’m young. I don’t really want to be 16 or something going to the Olympics. I want to be young and show every girl that you can do it, just go for it. Even though you’re little.”
Big ambitions for someone who isn’t even 10 yet. But considering how much she’s accomplished so far, she may just make the Olympics that young.
