Skateboarding was set to make its Olympic debut at the Tokyo Summer Games this year.
(Reuters) – Eleven-year-old Brazilian Gui Khury has made skateboarding history by becoming the first person to land a 1080 on a vertical ramp more than two decades after Tony Hawk completed the first 900.
In a video posted on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/844741888953569/videos/187096409058959 late on Friday, Khury soars into the air and completes three full rotations (1080 degrees) before cleanly landing the trick then dropping to his knees, tossing his helmet in the air and falling onto his back in celebration.
