Tokyo Olympics: Sky Brown becomes Britain's youngest ever medallist, aged 13
Sky Brown took home the bronze in the skateboarding
After having made history by simply being selected for Tokyo 2020 - becoming the youngest Brit ever to be selected for the summer Games - Sky Brown has now added her first Olympic medal to that record, making her Team GB's youngest ever medallist. Amazing stuff.
The 13-year-old was one of several teenagers who dominated the women's park final, with Misugu Okamoto, 15, and Kokona Hiraki, 12, heading in as favourites. Ultimately, it was 19-year-old Sakura Yosozumi who took home the gold, but nobody could take their eyes off the raw talent on show at such a young age wherever they looked.
Brown, who was born in Japan, got off to a shaky start, having struggled to complete her first two attempts in the event, eventually managed to put in a really good run which saw her finish with a best score of 57.40. Just watch.

She finished on a real high as she spoke to the BBC: "Everyone has been ripping. It is awesome to be here. I didn't think about the scores. But I am really stoked on that score - very stoked." Imagine winning an Olympic medal at 13?
