    Tokyo 2020: Skateboarder Sky Brown set to become youngest British summer Olympian of all time

    Twelve-year-old Sky Brown is set to become the youngest British summer Olympian of all time after being named in the Team GB skateboarding squad.

    She will compete in the women’s park event in Tokyo this summer and is currently ranked third in the world.

    It is the first time skateboarding will feature at the Olympics, which is set to begin on 23 July.

    Sky’s dad Stu is English, but moved to the USA in his teens, before meeting mum Mieko in Japan. Born in Miyazaki, Sky spends half of her school year in Japan and half in the US.

    At the age of eight, Brown competed in the Vans US Open, making her the youngest person ever to compete at the event. On her return in 2018 she finished in the top 10.

    The talented skateboarder also won US TV show Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, with partner JT Church.
