Considered one of the most vibrant skateboarding communities worldwide, Brazil has hosted SLS competitions on three occasions in the last decade: in 2013, in Foz do Iguaçu (Paraná), and in the consecutive finals of 2018 (Rio de Janeiro) and 2019 (São Paulo).
“The Brazilian public is one of the most passionate skate fans in the world, always engaged in the presentations of their idols. Therefore, we will have an arena that will maximize the contact of athletes with the fans and that will offer attractions on and off the track”, says Pedro Dau de Mesquita, partner at 213 Sports.
Among the elite athletes competing to make the Super Crown World Championship are the Japanese Olympic champions, Yuto Horigome and Momiji Nishiya. Rayssa Leal (Silver Medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games), Pâmela Rosa, Kevin Hoefler (Silver Medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games), Luan Oliveria and Felipe Gustavo are among the Brazilians battling to compete in the final.
Participants will be defined after the SLS Championship Tour stops in the USA, namely Jacksonville (July 16th and 17th), Seattle (August 13th and 14th) and Las Vegas (October 7th and 8th). The top four ranked male and female skaters will qualify directly into the Super Crown World Final, while the remaining field will compete in an LCQ at the Super Crown event for the remaining four men’s and women’s final spots.
Joe Carr, CEO of Thrill One Sports and Entertainment – SLS’ parent company, said: “We are now only two months away from bringing the Super Crown World Championship, the most important event of the year in street skateboarding, back to Brazil on November 5-6. SLS has already received a tremendous amount of support from local governments, brands and media partners – we can’t wait to deliver a monumental event for our Brazilian fans. The skaters all have their sights set on Rio and Super Crown glory”.
The event, which has the support of the Federal Government, is presented by BB Seguros and is sponsored by Tiger Beer, Stanley and BAW Clothing.
