Indonesia’s 9 YO Girl Is The Youngest Skateboarder To Participate In Asian Games 2018

Inspiration never comes from the older ones always. Sometimes the young ones are enough to inspire people and gave them goals for like. Here's an instance for the same.

A nine years old skateboarder Aliqqa Noverry is the youngest competitor in the Asian Games 2018 that taking place in Jakarta. Whatever she has got she has the best and no one can compete with her-at least we believe that.  We gotta say, the girl is all about speed. Lucky are those who got their family's support and Aliqqa Noverry is one of them and after knowing she is the one youngest of this game, they were also shocked.

This 4 feet-2 inch tall spearhead is full of confidence and skills and boy she has got tricks too!

During an interview, she recently talked about her game and what skateboarding means to her: “My family supports me but they’re also very surprised knowing that I’m the youngest athlete here. Being the youngest makes me a little nervous but also more motivated. But my friends think it’s a bit unfair that I get to skip school. I think I would like to skate in Tokyo.”

Aliqqa is also confident about being the part of the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. In the interview, she clearly indicated that she wants to get as much experience as possible. Her proud mother Nin Hardi is nervous for her as she will be competing with boys twice her age. She said, "Of course I worry. That’s why I never leave her alone and always go with her to practice. If she gets ice cream, she’s all pumped up".

Talking about the injuries she usually gets while skateboarding, Aliqqa said, "I don’t like the injuries. I twisted my ankle badly once and I couldn’t walk for five days. I can get a bit traumatized by a trick if it injures me".

If you are reading this and not following your dreams or whatever you want to follow, take this young pioneer as an inspiration who is doing what she is best at. Her coach, Yudi Toengkagie always supports her and mentioned that the girl is moody sometimes but when she is in good mood, she never gives up. She explains that she wants to enjoy herself.

Well, you go girl! Good Luck.
