7 News San Diego covering the honoring of three Olympic Skateboarders and Exposure supporters!

NBC 7’s photojournalist Roberto Castanares introduces us to three women who have been pushing the boundaries in their sport to make it more inclusive.

Check out NBC 7 San Diego’s coverage of Jordyn Barrett, Bryce Wettstein and Amelia Brodka as they are honored for their Olympic successes and the impact that they have made on the advancement of the sport for women!

Bryce Wettstein, of Encinitas, was 15 years old when she competed in the Olympics’ newest sport at the 2022 Summer Games. She currently ranks 9th in the world in the women’s park skateboarding event.

Encinitas-born Jordan Barrett is also on the USA Olympic skateboarding team and has been competing on the world stage for more than a decade. Barrett volunteers for Exposure Skate, an empowerment organization that encourages women, trans and non-binary people through skateboarding.

Amelia Brodka, the co-founder of Exposure Skate, represented her country as the first Olympic skateboarder for Poland in the Tokyo Olympics. While attending the University of Southern California, Brodka created a documentary that focused on the glaring lack of opportunities for women in skateboarding.

Skateboarders kickflipping their way into male-dominated sport honored for Women’s History Month

All three were celebrated by San Diego County Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer at The Encinitas Skate Park this Women’s History Month. A choked-up Lawson-Remer highlighted the strides made in a sport that has been overwhelmingly male-dominated, thanks to women like Wettstein, Barrett and Brodka.
