After taking part Sky told BBC Sport "I was a little nervous but it was really fun,".

"I just wish I could have done even better."

Skateboarding will be included in the Olympic programme in 2020 for the first time.

According to Sky's father, the Japanese-English star who spends most of her time in America will return to the UK in May to compete in the National Surfing Championships in Cornwall.

That's because Sky is aiming to compete in surfing as well as skateboarding at the 2020 Olympics.
