At 13 years old, skateboarder Momiji Nishiya of Japan just became one of the youngest gold medal winners ever at the Olympic Games.

“I welled up in tears because I was beyond happy,” Nishiya said after her win, which took place in a nearly empty sports park.

“It’s not right to think, well you have to study, you can’t go skating because skating is for boys,” Leal told Reuters. “I think skateboarding is for everyone.”
