LONDON (Reuters) – Twelve-year-old skateboarder Sky Brown is set to become Britain’s youngest ever Summer Olympian after being listed as one of 20 women’s Park qualifiers for the Tokyo Games on Wednesday.

Brown finished second in a Tokyo Games qualifier in May, almost a year after suffering life-threatening injuries in a training fall.

Born to a Japanese mother and a British father, the 2019 world bronze medallist has yet to be selected formally by Britain.
