"Skateboard" sensation Sky Brown turned 13 just a couple of weeks before the opening ceremony of Tokyo 2020. She was the youngest British Olympian of all time (beating Margery Hinton, who swam at the 1928 Games aged 13 years and 43 days), and one of the youngest competitors in Tokyo.
And she lit up the tournament not just with her skills, but in the togetherness she was part of as the fiercely-competitive athletes encouraged, cheered and hugged each other throughout a scintillating Skate Park event.
Brown has a strong connection to Tokyo: her mother Mieko is Japanese. The skateboarder – whose father is English, but who divides her life between living in Japan and California – decided to compete for Skateboard Team GB as it would be less pressure than representing the home nation.
