Vans Park Series Sweden Live Broadcast Today

Kisa VPS SwedenThe last Pro Tour qualifier of the 2018 Vans Park Series Pro Tour season kicked off smoothly in Malmö, Sweden yesterday, setting the tone for a heavy battle in the men’s and women’s division today. Leading qualifier Tristan Rennie celebrated his first podium placement of the series in Brazil earlier this year, and secured his official invite to the VPS World Championships.

In the women’s competition, preliminary rounds ran as semi-finals with 22 competitors, producing noteworthy results for the Women’s finals lineup. Still buzzing off her win in Huntington Beach, Kisa Nakamura (JPN) qualified in the top position. Edged out of competition by only a few points, current world champion Nora Vasconcellos (USA) did not make the finals cut, leaving room for two tour challengers, Hunter Long (USA), 6th, and Arianna Carmona (USA), 8th, to compete in the finals round for their first time this season. Carmona and Long are the only two Challengers who can sneak into the World Championships lineup by potentially bumping out Mami Tezuka (JPN) from the fifth spot in the current global challenger rankings, but only if they place higher than Poppy Starr Olsen (AUS) and Sakura Yosozumi (JPN) in today’s competition.

The 2018 VPS Pro Tour, Men’s semis and Women’s finals will continue today with a live broadcast on the web. Check the listed broadcast times (below) in your local area.
