Olympic Gold Japan Skateboard
Japan Gold on the Skateboards
Japanese skaters have been dominating so far in Skateboarding’s first ever year in the Olympics. Japanese skaters won three of the six medals in Skateboarding’s Olympic premier, with Yuto Horigome, 22, and Momiji Nishiya, just 13, both taking Gold in the street competition.
The Podium in the Women’s event was two skaters aged 13 and one aged 16 making it the youngest podium in history. Maybe it is a young person’s sport and I have to move on and get into Golf 🙂
Japanese snowboarders have long been well respected on the snow so great to see such young guns succeeding in the Skateboarding arena. Ganbate Nippon!
