Brazilian skaters who competed on Skate Street at the San Diego stage of the X-Games in the United States this Sunday (24/7) were accustomed to favoritism in all competitions. Resa Leal, a Fadinha, was the closest with fourth place.
Last year, Olympic champion Momiji Nishiya of Japan won the title at the age of just 14. Second place went to Australian Chloe Cowell, even at just 12 years old. And the podium was also completed by 15-year-old Japanese Yumeka Oda.
A silver medalist at the Tokyo Games in the same event, Raisa failed on her first lap and was unable to enter the gold contention. “Not today!? But there’s more next weekend! Thanks @XGames! Thanks guys!”, the 14-year-old Brazilian said on his social network.
Leticia Buffoni was eighth a day after entering the record books for two feats achieved at the X-Games, for the medal record in competition among women and for being the most victorious woman in Skate Street among women. She was the current winner of the race. Pamela Rosa, in turn, finished ninth.
With these results, Brazilian skateboarding ended its participation in these X-Games with five medals. Gui Khouri won two silver medals, while Ronnie Gomes, Italo Penarubia and Luiz Francisco won bronze.
