Japan’s Momoji Nishiya has won the skateboarding gold medal at the age of 13.

She is one of the youngest winners of the Olympics gold medal this year. Nishiya topped a youthful podium with Rayssa Leal of Brazil, also 13, taking the silver medal and Japan’s Funa Nakayama, 16, winning bronze. With an average age of 14 years and 191 days, it is the youngest individual podium in the history of the Olympic Games.

The host nation has enjoyed a clean sweep of golds in the street event of skateboarding after Yuto Horigome won the men’s competition.

Sky Brown, at 13 years and 28 days, will become Britain’s youngest Olympian when she competes in the women’s park skateboarding on Wednesday, 4 August. Many of Japan’s young participants have taken part in the game. Kokona Hiraki is also one of them.

Skateboarding is one of five new sports added for this game.
