Hayley Wilson – Skateboarding
Hayley has been a passionate and mostly self-taught skateboarder since the age of seven. By the time she turned eight, her skills and focus led her to win her first competition. Hayley continued to follow her passion and at 10 she won her first Regional League event. Hayley honed her tricks and expertise on the skateboard circuit, and often competed in male dominated competitions. In 2016 she won the Victorian and Australian National Skateboarding competitions. Hayley also represented Australia in “Exposure” — the world’s largest all female skateboarding competition in California U.S.A where she won the open AM women’s street skateboarding competition. Now 15, Hayley is thriving in the sport and is always positive, friendly, and shows true sportsmanship. Her goal is to compete in the 2020 Olympics, X Games and Street League in skateboarding.
Well done Hayley!
Victoria is the place to Skate!
