After making history by becoming Great Britain’s youngest Olympic medal winner of all time, skateboarder Sky Brown is already plotting her next move – in surfing.

Her father, Stu, revealed he dissuaded his daughter from trying to compete in surfing as well as skateboarding in Tokyo, but admits he may be powerless to stop her again.

“It’ll be up to her by then. She’ll be 16, and it’s hard enough now,” he joked.

Sky goes surfing most days before school and has competed at junior levels, finishing second in an aerial surfing invitational in Texas.

There could be one issue making it challenging for Sky to realise her ambition – the surfing is due to be held in Tahiti, nearly 10,000 miles from the French capital where the skateboarding will take place.

The Sky’s the limit
