Catching Up with Sky Brown on Mega Ramps + More
12-year-old Sky Brown should have been celebrating her (and skateboarding’s) debut in the 2020 summer Olympics in Tokyo by now. But 2020 had different plans—for everyone! Instead, Sky is celebrating another monumental accomplishment. She is the first female skateboarder to tackle the 100-foot mega ramp housed in pro skateboarder Elliot Sloan’s backyard. Elliot confirmed this on the video he posted to his YouTube channel.
We’re continuously in awe of Sky, her accomplishments and her whole demeanor. She also sat down with USA Today Sports and GoPro using her HERO8 Black as a webcam for a video interview recently. In the video below, she talks about how her 2020 is going, future Olympic and other competitive aspirations and just life in general. Check it out.
