X Games Oslo Women’s Skate Street Finals Recap

Written by: Jimmy Coleman

The 2nd event of the evening gave the women their time to shine, and take the spotlight inside Skur 13. It was also the opportunity to hand out the first set of X Games Oslo medals for the weekend. It was a 6 skater final for the women; they were given three runs each, 50 seconds in length, with the best run counting.

Lacey Baker was 2nd to drop in the lineup, and she jumped out to an early lead, with a 1st run score of 77.66. Two skaters later, Pamela Rosa took to the course, and put up her best score of the 3 runs. She had a full pull with highlights that included a front side boardslide on a rail, feeble grind and front side smith grind, as well as a perfectly executed tre flip. That run put her in the top spot, with an 80.33, and one skater left to go in round one. Alexis Sablone would skate last, and was able to net a 76.33. At the end of run 1, the top 3 were Rosa, Baker, and Sablone.

Run number 2 saw Alana Smith put up her best run of the night. She was on point with feeble grinds down the rails on both the 3 and 4 stair set, as well as a 360 flip. A fall right before the buzzer, would leave her best score a 73.33. Lacey made a good run at trying to take the top spot. Her 2nd run included a nollie heelflip, 360 flip, and a kickflip to bench boardslide to drop. The judges rewarded her with a 79.66, not enough to overtake Pamela, but definitely help cement herself into a podium position. Brazil’s Leticia Bufoni would string together her best run in this round, with a front side 180 to flat down the stairs, and a 360 flip. Falls on a crooked grind, frontside lipslide, and on the quarter would leave her with a 74 flat. Pamela Rosa was trying to build on her 1st round lead, but fell just short, with her mother Evania, who was very nervous and a bit emotional during the entire experience. Alexis Sablone would have her best run of the night at the end of this round with a front side boardslide, a kickflip down the bigger stair set. She did have a fall at the end on an attempted 50-50 grind on the hubba ledge. It did however up her score to a 77.33 despite the fall. At the end of round 2, the top 3 remained Rosa, Baker, Sablone.

Third and final round, no one was able to improve, until Vanessa Torres dropped in for her last run. She was all the way down in 6th place pre run, but put together a 50-50 grinds both front and backside, a crooked grind, kickflip over the brick pyramid hip, and a frontside 5-0 to fakie. She did have a fall on a front boardslide to fakie attempt, but the run was good enough for a 79.66, and moved her from 6th into 3rd place, with 2 skaters left to go. Pamela Rosa, was unable to best her 1st run score again, and it all came down to Alexis Sablone. In the end, she had several falls and was unable to jump back into podium contention.

Vanessa Torres would finish out with the bronze medal, making this her 3rd street medal. She now has 1 silver, and 2 bronze. Lacey Baker walked away with the silver medal, making this her 5th medal in 10 X Games appearances. Pamela Rosa was able to claim gold by virtue of her first run. Her mother’s tears of anxiety, soon turned to those of joy, as she cracked a big smile during the medal ceremony. She has 2 silver medals from XG Austin the last 2 years, but this was her first gold. At 16 years old, she now is the youngest winner of a women’s skateboard street final at X Games.
