Sky Brown on Cloud Nine as GB’s youngest ever Olympic medallist

Bronze medallist Sky Brown says she hopes more people will start skateboarding after watching the 2020 Olympics.

The 13 year-old has become Great Britain's youngest Olympic medal winner after breaking swimmer Margery Hinton's record from the 1928 Games.

After falling in her first two runs of the final, she nailed her last attempt with a score of 56.47 to finish behind Japanese pair Sakura Yosozumi and Kokona Hiraki.

A delighted Brown told the BBC: “It’s incredible, it feels unreal. I’m so happy to be here. It was a super sick final. It was insane.”

Asked what she planned to do next, she replied: “Hang out with some friends and party.”
