The most exciting event at the X Games 16 in Los Angeles had to be 15-year-old Pedro Barros winning the gold medal of the skateboarding park. Pedro shocked everyone! He is the new young hero that overcame all odds and beat the best skaters of the World, and he made it look easy.


Pedro’s Brief Bio

Barros BargeBarros Barge

Pedro is from Florianopolis, Brazil. He learned how to skateboard when most kids were learning how to walk. He became a surfer too, which helped him create some awesome skills and style to his skateboarding technique. He now competes in most skateboarding events and you can tell he is fearless by the speed he generates.

Pedro wasn’t even born yet when the X-Games began 16 years ago, but it seemed like he had all the experience he needed to wipe out the competition. Pedro faced 36-year-old Andy MacDonald in the final, but Andy could not keep up with the monster scores Pedro served up every run. Andy has competed in all 16 X Games, and he leads the record books for most X Games’ Medals. Chalk up another Silver medal for Andy.


Curren Competition

It was quite amazing but even younger than Pedro in the finals was Curren Caples who placed 4th and should be a major contender next year. Curren was the big fan favorite in Los Angeles as a lot of young teenage girls screamed everytime he dropped into the bowls. Curren had the skill and the moves to compete with Pedro, but he kept missing a kickflip transfer. Maybe he’ll have it mastered when he turns 15 years old.

Pedro and Curren really showed how younger kids are getting so good so fast. The X Games is like the Olympics of the Action Sports and if kids 15 and 14 are competing for the Gold, it shows that there are no boundaries anymore.
