Sky Brown, 13, becomes Britain’s youngest Olympic medallist with skateboard bronze


Sky Brown has been crowned Great Britain’s youngest ever Olympic medallist after claiming bronze in the women’s skateboard park event at the Ariake Urban Arena in Tokyo.

After falling in her first two runs of the final, the 13-year-old nailed her last attempt with a score of 56.47 to finish behind Japanese pair Sakura Yosozumi and Kokona Hiraki.

Aged just 12, Hiraki duly eclipsed Brown to become the youngest Olympic medallist in 85 years. Favourite Misugu Okamoto fell on her final run and missed out on the podium.
