Momiji Nishiya, 13, took a sensational gold medal for host nation Japan in the first ever women's skateboarding event at an Olympic Games.
Nishiya topped an all-teenage podium in the women's street event at the Ariake Urban Sports Park.
Her triumph follows that of team-mate Yuti Horigome, who took gold in the men's equivalent earlier at Tokyo 2020.

In a remarkable victory, Nishiya produced three excellent tricks to score highly in the second half of the street competition.
Rayssa Leal of Brazil, also 13, took silver, while Nishiya's compatriot Nakayama Funa secured bronze.
Alexis Sablone (USA) and Roos Zwetsloot (Netherlands) had appeared well-placed to jostle for gold after the run section of the event.
Sablone consolidated her position of strength after scoring 5.01 for her third trick, and at that point seemed likely to storm to gold.

But the American failed to land either of her final two tricks, eventually finishing in fourth when a solid but unspectacular trick might have been enough to seal the title.
Zwetsloot, meanwhile, could only land one of her tricks to fade to fifth.
The result should be another boon to skateboarding's popularity in Japan.
