So, if you are a big fan of female skateboarders, our list in this review shall excite you, because we are counting down some of the best Skateboarders of 2020, and definitely athletes you should look out for during the 2021 Summer Olympics. Let’s get started
Leticia Bufoni, 26: São Paulo, Brazil
Leticia is on the trajectory to being named one of the most powerful women in international sports by Forbes Magazine. She has a great passion for Skateboarding and started while very young, growing up in Sao Paulo.
She has won five gold medals in the X-Games competitions and currently has more than 3.4 million fans on her social media accounts. Currently, she is busy getting ready for the 2021 competitions, which will be the first time for her to participate in the Olympic Games.
Samarria Brevard, 25: Riverside, California
Samarria Brevard has previously been described as the Serena Williams of skateboarding because she is that good. She was the first-ever African-American skateboarder to have made her name at the X-Games in 2017 and is preparing to appear in the Olympic Games.
She is soft-spoken and a musician as well, who encourages women to keep pushing themselves in sports each day. We look forward to seeing how she will perform in the upcoming competitions.
Alexis Sablone, 32: Brooklyn, New York
Alexis Sablone is not only a skateboarder but also an architecture student at MIT and Columbia. She has been able to maintain quite a steady rise in the sport to become one of the most accomplished female skateboarders of all time.
She has so far nabbed 3 X-Games Gold medals, and while she started out skateboarding in order to pay for her school, she is now reaping the rewards of hard work and looking forward to being part of the Olympic Games.
Alana Smith, 18: Mesa, Arizona
Alana Smith is by far the youngest medalist in the history of the X-Games. She won a silver medal in 2003 while she was only 12 years old, and is poised to become the next big thing in the sport.
She grew up with 3 sisters and was often called “Super Girly.” Often, she was the only girl at the state park, and she is looking forward to changing that in the coming years, as she participates in the Olympic Games.
Sky Brown, 11: Miyazaki, Japan
Sky Brown is quite literally a pint-sized skater who is only 11 years old. At this age, she has already made a name for herself and has become an unstoppable force both in and out of the park.
She is a Japanese-born skater who is by far the youngest competitor to ever compete in Britain’s first-ever Olympic Skateboarding team.
Brown is a professional surfer as well, who took home the grand prize in 2018 on Dancing with the stars – juniors. Her main mission as a skateboarder, however, is to bring more girls on board and teach them how to skateboard.
We certainly wish her all the best, and cannot wait to see how her life shall unfold in the next couple of years as she keeps growing and making her skills greater.
Well, there goes your list of the best female skateboarders of 2020, and definitely some of the people you should be looking out for in the first-ever Skateboarder’s Olympic Games competition that is meant to happen in 2021. All the best to all of them.
