Momizi won Olympic gold. This is the first skateboard event to be added to the Olympics. And for the first time, something shocking happened in this event. Momizi just 13 years old, got off to a good start at the Tokyo Olympics by winning gold.
Momizi won Olympic gold at just 13 years old
Not only that, the age has also surprised the silver and bronze winners in this event. The highest age of the three is Momizi’s compatriot. And the age of the silver-winning athlete is the same as that of Momizi.
Momizi Nishiya was the best in the women’s skateboarding final at Ariac Park on Monday with 15.28 points. Another 13-year-old Brazilian Raisa Lille showed surprise by winning silver with 14.64 points. Besides, Pune Nakayama of Japan, who got bronze, is 18 years old.
Meanwhile, after celebrating the gold victory, he found out that he had won silver
Crossing the finish line, he left the handlebars of the bicycle and celebrated the gold victory by spreading his arms on both sides. He ran to the coach. In the midst of the insane celebration, he found out that someone else had done the celebration of gold victory before him. Silver is on his forehead. The Tokyo Olympics has witnessed such a strange event in women’s road races.
Austin’s Kissenhofer won the gold medal on Sunday (July 25th) at the Fuji International Speedway Circuit with a time of 3 hours 52 minutes 45 seconds and a distance of 138 km. Vanme Vluten from the Netherlands won the silver with a time of 1 minute 15 seconds more than him. Italy’s Elisa Longo Baghini won the bronze medal in this event. But Vluten did not know that someone else had crossed the finish line before him.
This is the fault of Vluten due to a fault in the communication system with his team and managers. He did not get a proper connection to the radio. His team therefore could not tell him who was ahead. However, Vluten later admitted his mistake to the journalists. He said, ‘Yeah, I thought I won. I was certainly indifferent about this. At first, I thought I was really stupid, but then I saw that others didn’t know who won.
This is an example of participating in such an important competition without any communication (not knowing your own position). Every cycling competition in the world has a communication system and the three of us are standing here wondering who actually won, ”added Vluten.
Although Vluten is also satisfied with silver. This is his first medal in the Olympics. The cyclist was the victim of a terrible accident at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Vluten himself knows that it would be great to come back from there and be second in Tokyo. So this Dutch athlete is proud of the medal even though it is the second.
