Alana Smith Making X-Games History

i

X-Games have been officially around for 19 years. Through the years we have seen athletes triumph and truly inspiring stories from unexpected places. This year we were blessed to see not one but, two pieces of X-Games history unravel in Barcelona this summer. Not only did Alana make history as an athlete but, this years summer X-Games in Barcelona held the first Women’s Park contest in the X-Games ever. Alana Smith became the youngest X-Games medalist at 12 years and 6 months.

She won a silver medal in the Women’s Skate Park event. People may not realize but this is HUGE. Not only is it incredible for a such a young athlete to medal in the games but, Alana is defying the odds of all the doubters who think women can not be superior athletes. Every year there are more and more ways people are defying the odds of stereotypes and societies “rules” . Alanna has been only skating for 3 and a half years which technically is almost a third of her whole life. I see her being a huge success in the near future inspiring girls all over the world to reach out and follow your dreams no matter what they are. Congratulations Alanna and we only hope the best for you! Here are some of the greatest moments in X-games Barcelona 2013.

  1. Alana is something else. And an x-games medal after only skating for three years? That’s a another record broken right there for sure.

  2. Yeah its crazy what she has accomplished already. We are talking bright future here would not put out the idea of her being the Mia Hamm of Skateboarding.
