Congratulations to Meow Skateboards Pro Mariah Duran for making the first-ever Olympic Skateboarding Team!
"Mariah is one of the most technical and talented skaters today, taking on big stair sets and rails with finesse and ease. She’s been a member of the USA Skateboarding Women’s Street National Team since it started in 2019, is the reigning National Champion for women’s street, and is one of the top women skaters heading into skateboarding’s inaugural debut at the Tokyo Olympic Games. 2016 was a breakout year for Mariah, clinching the Silver medal at X Games and releasing two full video parts before turning pro for Meow Skateboards. She won her first SLS podium spot at the Super Crown World Championship in 2017. It’s easy to see why Duran then became a back-to-back X Games Gold medalist in 2018." - USAskateboarding.com
