Brighton Zeuner was put on this Earth to ride a skateboard. She started at age four, was competing by eight, and in 2016, at twelve, she was crowned the inaugural Vans Park Series World Champion. Add in back-to-back X Games Gold medals in 2017 and 2018, and consistent top-five finishes through 2019, and what you get is a young skater with a one-way ticket to greatness.
Like most girls her age, Brighton is really into fashion. Unlike most girls her age, she stays busy ravaging the thrift stores around Encinitas, California with her brother Jack, looking for vintage gear to cut up and sew together with the clothing she already reps.
After Brighton qualified for Team USA ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, she was just a year older than the minimum required age to compete. In other words, for Brighton’s Olympic future, this is just the beginning.
