Touted by the skaters as one of the best park designs in Park Series history, the new Vans-Utah Sports Commission skatepark proved to be the perfect terrain for 2019 VPS Champion Oskar Rozenberg Hallberg. Hallberg showed unswerving determination early on in the competition, with consistent runs mastering the new course. Oski’s creativity and improvisation ultimately made for one of the most exciting runs of the Park Series to date. His inspiring mix of tricks and lines got the crowd’s attention as they chanted his name, and placed him atop the leader board unrivaled by the field. This win marks Hallberg’s second world championship title. Former world champion Alex Sorgente laid down the best of his technical style in hopes for a third championship title, but fell slightly short in his later runs, while Tristan Rennie, one of the most consistent skaters all season, earned 3rd. 3rd - Mami Tezuka, 1st - Sakura Yosozumi, 2nd - Kokono Hiraki 3rd - Mami Tezuka, 1st - Sakura Yosozumi, 2nd - Kokono Hiraki

Barging the women’s podium fast and furious, Japanese skaters Sakura Yosozumi, Kokona Hiraki and Mami Tezuka surely made their country proud at today’s competition. VPS Women’s World Champion Sakura Yosozumi has been an obvious title contender, having won multiple events, and consistently advancing into finals at every tour stop she attends. Yosozumi’s trick selection continues to progress, and her clean execution of every run earned her the championship title today. Not far behind in second place, 11-year-old Kokona Hiraki was constantly at Yosozumi’s coattails, showing hunger for the win, while style wunderkind Mami Tezuka was a crowd favorite, placing third.
