Sky Brown, winner of Dancing With The Stars Juniors, can add an Olympic bronze medal to the Mirrorball Trophy she won on the show.
Sky released a series of photographs on Instagram right before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, expressing her gratitude for the opportunity to “show the world how beautiful and creative skateboarding really is.” The 13-year-old actress went on to say that she hopes the women “watching this and thinking I can do this too” will be encouraged by her achievements.
Sky is not only one of the youngest females to compete and medal at a professional skateboarding tournament thanks to her skills on the skateboard and the surfboard, but she has also become a social media celebrity at a young age.
After Achieving Success in the Athletic Realm,
Sky decided to try her hand at something completely different and participate on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars: Juniors.
She began her professional dancing career at age 10 when she teamed up with rising star JT Church under the tutelage of Alan Bersten, a current professional dancer on Dancing with the Stars.
Through the course of the season, Sky competed in dance against other young celebrities like Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, Tripp Johnston-Palin, and Mackenzie Ziegler. Sky won the competition even though some of the Juniors were already well-known dance stars.
The 2020 Summer Olympics were held in Tokyo, Japan, and skateboarding was included for the first time.
At the age of 15, Sky became the Youngest Briton to ever win an Olympic Medal.
Sky, who won bronze, wasn’t even the youngest female athlete to achieve notable success in the novel event. Kokona Hiraki, 12, who also competed for Japan, won the silver medal and stood next to her on the podium.
Sakura Yosozumi, a 19-year-old competitor also representing her country, won the gold. After achieving her greatest success to far, Sky released a video to her Instagram Story in which the former Dancing with the Stars contestant informed her supporters, “My heart is bursting with pride at the sight of this medal. I appreciate everyone’s help so much.”
Sky is excited to throw a huge party and go surfing in her backyard in Oceanside, California, to commemorate this momentous occasion.
It has been reported by The Guardian that the young athlete has his sights set on making the British surfing team for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.
“Oh, I pray so! There’s no doubt in my mind that I’ll be trying surfing, “Something the sky remarked. “After this, I plan on doing a lot of surfing. I can’t wait to spend some quality time with my brother, and then I’m heading out to a fun get-together with my pals.”
After breaking her leg last year while attempting a move on a huge ramp, former Dancing with the Stars contestant Sky knows how meaningful it would be to bring home an Olympic gold.
Multiple skull fractures, lacerated lungs, and a fractured left arm were among the injuries she sustained in the incident.
She reflected on the day her parents tried to convince her to give up sports forever and stated, “That accident was quite horrible.”
“It was a tough period for my parents and for a lot of others, and it’s awesome to come back here and win bronze after all this time. In a word, yes! I feel like I’m stronger now because of that.”
Despite the participants’ seeming youth, bringing home an Olympic medal is no simple task. Sky has already won an Olympic medal and the Dancing with the Stars title, so she is confident she can add a surfing gold at the next Tahiti games.
However, it will be difficult for her to compete in both sports due to the simultaneous nature of the skateboarding and surfing competitions.
Sky’s father is encouraging of her ambitions, saying that if that’s what she wants to do, they’ll figure out a way to make it work in the spirit of being the best Girl Dad in sports.
