15-year-old girl becomes Europan skateboarding champion


This 6 December 2019 video from the Netherlands is about skater girl Keet Oldenbeuving.

It says about itself:

At 15-years-old, Keet Oldenbeuving has already carved out a place for herself at the forefront of the female skateboarding scene, winning contests around the world and skating with her idols like Candy Jacobs and Leticia Bufoni. Keet’s consistency in contests is quickly paying off, climbing the world rankings with a solid chance of representing The Netherlands in Tokyo 2020. Recently, Keet won the European champion title in Russia and shows no signs of slowing down.

In this Not Here By Luck episode, get an inside view into Keet’s life: hanging out and skating with friends through her hometown of Utrecht, kicking it with her parents who first put her on a board when she was in kindergarten, and traveling to places like Amsterdam and Rotterdam to meet up with homies and continue the search for new spots to skate.

Read an in-depth interview with Keet on Wasted Talent.

Keet Oldenbeuving is only 15 years old.

Nevertheless, today, in Nizhny Novgorod in Russia, she became European champion in the street discipline in skateboarding.

Second place was for Belgian Lore Bruggemare; third for Dutch Roos Zwetsloot; fourth for Dutch Candy Jacobs.

They all want to go to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, where there will be skateboarding for the first time ever.

Ms Oldenbeuving is not even world’s youngest top class skateboarder.

Brazilian Rayssa Leal is only 11 years old. She was second in the September 2019 world championship in her own country.

This June 2019 video is about Rayssa Leal.
