Sky Brown Family are her biggest fans
Stuart is British by nationality and alongside being Sky’s father, is one of her biggest fans. Sky Brown’s mum is Miko Brown, who is Japanese by nationality and also a huge supporter of the talented skateboarder. Miko is a housewife and a great mother to Sky and her younger brother Ocean.
Sky’s younger brother, Ocean Brown, is also a professional skateboarder. Ocean is just nine years old and is already following in the footsteps of his father and older sister.
While he is her biggest supporter, her father Stuart does admit it isn’t always easy being the parent of a young athlete. On 28 May 2020, while training in California, she suffered a “horrific” fall from a halfpipe ramp which left her with several skull fractures and a broken left wrist and hand. She was flown to a hospital and was reported as being unresponsive on arrival.
Her father said: “We spent the night sick and terrified not knowing if Sky was going to make it through the night, as the ICU team tried to get her conscious and kept her alive.” Despite the traumatic experience of her injury, Sky has recovered quickly and continued making steps forward in her career.
Sky Brown’s career
Despite being so young, Sky already has an impressive skateboarding resume. She won a bronze medal at the 2019 World Championships in Sao Paolo. Brown was born in Japan and therefore qualified to compete for either Japan or Great Britain and Northern Ireland. She ultimately chose Team GB.
After the announcement of her place in Team GB, Sky said: “It’s a crazy feeling. It’s like more than a dream come true. I mean, it’s insane. I’m so stoked and I’m going to try my best for Britain.”
