Seven Street League skaters (Shane O’Neill, Paul Rodriguez, Nyah Huston, Luan Oliveira, Ryan Decenzo, Tom Asta, and Cody McEntire) have each clinched spots in the upcoming 2016 SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship. This leaves only one spot in the top eight to be decided today in Newark, NJ.
SLS Pick Chris Joslin sits on the bubble for Super Crown qualification, but he’ll need to skate strong and remain consistent because he’s up against a handful of SLS veterans. Ishod Wair, Chris Cole, Sean Malto, and David Gonzalez are a few of the heavy hitters that are able to snag this eighth spot.
Keep in mind that there’s a handful of skaters that can take the top spot with a first place finish, earning them a Golden Ticket straight into the 2016 SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship.
Tune into Street League’s webcast live and direct from Newark, New Jersey today to witness the action. The Prelim heats kick off at 1:25pm EST on streetleague.com, followed by the Final at 5:00pm live on Fox Sports1 (US) and streetleague.com (International).
