Wilson soars to second in Shanghai

Monday, 03 June 2019

VIS athlete Hayley Wilson backed up her historic podium finish at the World Skate Street League Skateboarding (SLS) World Tour event in London last week, to finish second at the Shanghai X Games.

X Games legend, Leticia Bufoni, added a fifth gold to her collection when she won the highly competitive Women’s Skateboard Street final.

The 26 year old Brazilian put it out there with the first of her three runs and scored 84.33 points. However 17-year-old Wilson almost earned a dramatic victory with her third attempt, taking silver with 83.00. US architect, Alexis Sablone 32, took bronze with 81.66.

Wilson took to her Instagram page after the event, “Been another crazy week! #XGames #Shanghai”@hayley_wilsonn

Wilson is now looking forward to getting back into some hard training at the VIS!
