British skateboarder Sky Brown, who won a bronze medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, has become a world champion at the age of 14.

Brown won gold in park skateboarding at the World Championships in Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates on Sunday with a best score of 90.83 from her three runs.

Olympic champion Sakura Yosozumi, also from Japan, took bronze.

Britain’s Lola Tambling finished sixth with 81.53 points.

“Being on the podium with these guys again is so crazy,” Brown told Sky Sports. “It’s just been really fun. I was trying to enjoy it as much as I could.

“Landing all three of my runs was an amazing feeling.”

Brown became Great Britain’s youngest Olympic medal winner of all time when she won a bronze at the Tokyo 2020 Games at the age of 13.

The skateboarder, who was born in Miyazaki, Japan, to a Japanese mother and British father, competed at the US Open in 2016 at the age of eight, and first elected to compete for Great Britain in 2018.

Skateboarding was one of four new sports added to the Olympics in 2020, with skateboarding events held in both “park” and “street” categories of the sport.
