This past weekend, 14-year-old Brighton Zeuner won her second X-Games gold medal at the 2018 Minneapolis Women’s Skateboard Park contest – making her the youngest athlete to ever win two X Games gold medals. Her first gold was at the 2017 Minneapolis X Games and it is safe to assume that this year’s win likely won’t be her last.
Not only that, but this was the youngest podium in X Games in history … for any event. She was joined by silver medalist Sabre Norris (who is 13 years old) and bronze medalist Sakura Yosozumi (who is 16 years old).
As stated by the X Games announcer, the average age on the podium of last year’s Women’s Skateboard Park contest was 16 years and 2 months. This year, it was 14 years and 7 months. That’s right, these young ladies carved a new record by nearly two years.
