Eleven-year-old skateboarder Sky Brown, who is hoping to become Britain’s youngest Olympian next year, has fractured her skull and broken bones in her left hand after falling from a ramp during a training session in California.
Brown posted a video of the accident on Instagram and reassured supporters she was doing fine and was going to work even harder when she returns.
“I don’t usually post [videos of] my falls or talk about them … but this was my worst fall. I just want everyone to know that it’s ok, don’t worry, I’m ok,” she said.
“I’m going to push boundaries for girls with my skating and surfing. I’m going for gold in 2021 and nothing will stop me.”
