STU OPEN RIO 2023 USA PODIUMS
The STU OPEN in Rio De Janeiro results are in. Six days of skate, art, music, and lifestyle have come to an end, leaving a few lucky skateboarders with some new hardware. Paige Heyn lands in the Silver medal position in Women's Street, behind Rayssa Leal's Gold. Heyn scored an impressive 82.23, trailing Leal's total by 3.47 points. This marks her fourth podium finish in a row. Tom Schaar returns to the podium, finishing in the Silver medal position in Men's Park. Schaar was 0.61 points away from the gold under Pedro Barros. We are keeping our eyes on all USA talent as we round off the year heading into phase 2 of World Skate competitions. The top 44 from each discipline will advance to the Olympic Qualification events. Sharjah will mark the first Olympic Qualifier for skaters around the world, and we anticipate a heavy point weight for all upcoming events, which gives anyone in the top 44 a chance to compete on the world stage.
