He flips one opponent after another among the absolute elite. British skateboarder Brown has qualified for the Tokyo Olympics thanks to her position in the world rankings. Not everything has been endorsed by Olympic officials, but it appears to be just a formality. As a twelve-year-old female athlete, the girl historically became the youngest Olympian in Great Britain. History will record anyway. If he reaches the medal, then also with indelible letters. The same is true for 12-year-old Japanese Kokun Hiraki, but there will be more riders under the age of 15 in the Japanese capital.
The premiere of the skateboarding movie will be held in Tokyo. Thus the path under the five circles was opened for talented young knights. The 15-year-old British champion Bombet Martin, 14-year-old Japanese Misogo Okamoto, 12-year-old Hiraki, as well as 12-year-old Brown and other young skaters should appear in Japan.
They were all among the top 20 riders in the world in the park category. The competition will be held under the auspices of World Skate and according to its world rankings, the starting list is also compiled.
This is how the girls go down in history among the youngest Olympic athletes. In addition, if some of them in Tokyo could bear the weight of the moment and reach one of the medals, that would be extraordinary. But they have the performance to do so.
The youngest trackable Olympic athlete in history is ten-year-old gymnast Dimitrios Londras, who won a bronze medal in the team competition in Athens. It happened in 1896.
In 1936, twelve-year-old swimmer Inge Sorensen won the gold medal in the breaststroke. South Korean speed skater Kim Yeon-mi won her first Olympic gold medal at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer at just 13 years old.
