Sky Brown Crowned Great Britain’s Youngest Olympic Medallist at the ongoing Tokyo Olympic Game 2020
In a moment of history in makings, Sky Brown has been crowned Great Britain’s youngest Olympic medallist, this came after she finished third behind the Japanese pair Sakura Yosozumi and Kokona Hiraki at the women’s skateboard park event at the Ariake Urban Arena in Tokyo with a score of 56.47 at the age of 13 and 28days old, it was indeed an interesting competition at that global level as she was able to make the world and entire Great Britain’s proud
Sky would have been the world’s youngest Olympic medallist since 1930 except for Japanese Kokona Hiraki, who is six weeks younger.
Speaking on why the young athlete chose to be on the British team rather than the Japanese team, her father, Stu Brown said:
“We chose Great Britain because we felt that there was no pressure and they didn’t ask us to commit
They made it very clear that if she wasn’t happy or wasn’t feeling good at any time we could pull out.”
Sky Brown is sponsored by Nike, has a deal with Barbie, and also another deal with Claire’s Accessories and she does TV adverts for Visa and Samsung.
The youngster did not allow her crash last year which left her with multiple skull fractures, lacerations in her lungs and stomach, and a broken left arm to deter her from making history in the Olympic games.
At that, she turns her hard time into the inspiration the world is celebrating her win today, she has not just made history, she has created history, keeping records for the feature athletes to compete and beat, only but time will tell
