At just 12 years old, Alana Smith became the youngest X Games medalist in history. Smith won the silver medal in the women's skateboard park contest as the X Games kicked off in Barcelona over the past weekend.
Fellow american Mitchie Brusco, who first competed when he was just 14, landed the first 1080 in X Games history on the "MegaRamp." It was only the third time the trick had ever been landed, ever, in all of skateboarding history.
This weekend also belonged to veterans like as Garrett Reynolds, who won his sixth straight BMX Street title, and Bob Burnquist, who made it to four straight Skateboard Big Air victories. Pedro Barros won his third consecutive Skateboard Park gold and Zack Warden defended his BMX Big Air title from Brazil.
