A woman from Encinitas took home the X Games silver medal in Women’s Skateboard Park this past weekend in Minneapolis.
Jordyn Barratt is a two-time X Games skateboard medalist. At last year’s X Games Austin, she took home a bronze medal as a rookie.
This past June, Barratt was the only female to qualify and compete at the Dew Tour when she secured her spot through the Podium App.
The Podium App allows anyone to submit their skating videos to qualify for one of the few spots in the Dew Tour.
Barratt’s next competition will be the Vans Park Series competition at the U.S. Open of Surfing in a couple of weeks, followed by the Vans Park Series World Championships in Shanghai this September.
Barratt has Olympic aspirations since skateboarding will be making its Olympic debut in Tokyo 2020.
