Sky Brown, a British teenager who skateboards, won gold at the World Park Skateboarding Championships on Sunday in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.
The 14-year-three old’s runs added up to a score of 90.83, which put her ahead of Kokona Hiraki and Sakura Yosozumi of Japan.
Brown is the first person from Great Britain to win the world skateboarding title. Brown is no stranger to setting new records. At the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, she won bronze in the women’s park skateboarding event.
At the time, Brown’s bronze medal at the Olympics made her the youngest British Olympian ever. She was one of three 13-year-olds to win a medal at the Tokyo Games for skateboarding.
Brown turned pro at age 10 and has grown up in the spotlight. She has a big fan base on social media, with over a million Instagram followers. She also has a YouTube channel with her brother, Ocean. When she was 4, she became famous when her father posted a video of her skating on Facebook.
When she turned pro in 2018, Nike signed her up. She has also been in ads with athletes like Simone Biles, a gymnast, and Serena Williams, a tennis star. BBC News says that she won “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors” in 2018.
Brown, who is ranked third in the world, was the first woman to do a frontside 540 at the X Games, which is an annual competition for extreme sports. At the time, she was only 11. For the trick, the skateboarder has to spin one and a half times while in the air.
