X Games Chiba 2023 Organizers announced the cancellation of all matches on Saturday (May 13) due to inclement weather.
On the second day of the X Games, incessant rain at the ZOZO Marine Stadium canceled five finals – Women’s Street and Park Skateboarding, Men’s Park Skateboarding, BMX Park and Skateboarding Vert.
Friday’s elimination results in four events saw the skateboarding vert low. Sunday’s schedule has yet to be announced.
Raisa Leal (88.33), Nishiya Momiji (86.66) and Agama Risu (83.66) The women reached the stage on the street. Hiroki Kokona (83.33), Ruby Lily (73.66) and Fuji Urine (72.00) won the women’s park medals Keegan Palmer (83.66), Cory Juneau (79.66) and Gavin Potter (78.00) topped the men’s park.
Daniel Sandoval (87.00), Logan Martin (86.33) and Marcus Christopher (83.66) rounded out the top three at BMX Park.
It was the first X Games gold for Olympic medalists Palmer and Hiraki.
„I felt great yesterday,” Palmer told olympics.com. „With only two hours to practice before the competition, I wasn’t too nervous, not nervous, that’s our competition. I didn’t have high expectations to do well, so I think that gave me the win. Everyone.
„I skated there, had fun and I thought it paid off.
„I have a bad ratio with X Games events. I’ve never done well. My best place was fourth because I don’t really enjoy the parks. But I really enjoyed the park they built this year.”
Hiragi said, „This is my first X Games championship. I was able to leave everything in the first elimination and it paid off. I couldn’t be happier.
„I was so bored waiting and waiting. I didn’t know if we were going to make it through or not. I had friends from places as far away as Hokkaido, so it would have been nice to have the final.”
