Australian skateboarder Chloe Covell has won silver at the World Skate Skateboarding Street World Tour event in Dubai, United Arab Emirates overnight. 

The Street World Tour event marked the end of Phase 1 for skateboarders earning valuable ranking points towards qualifying for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Due to rain prohibiting competition on Saturday, both the Semi Final and Final took place on Sunday. 

13-year-old Covell qualified in first place for the Women’s Final with 93.49, the highest run score for a female in World Skateboarding Tour history, putting her last in the lineup for the final. 

“I like going last because there is a lot of pressure but you can see what other people are scoring,” said Covell following the Semi Final. 

“I feel I stand out from the others because I have different tricks to them, I usually skate the stair sets which a lot of the girls don’t really do as they focus on the hobbles and the rails.

“I like the stair set and the technical tricks on smaller obstacles.” 

Covell entered the Final’s Best Trick in first place however was only able to land two of her five tricks ending with a score of 267.29.  Japan’s Liz Akama final score of 270.84 knocked Covell out of first place with only a 3.55 point difference between gold and silver. 

Covell will now return home to Australia to prepare for Phase 2 of Paris 2024 qualification with the Olympic Qualifier Series beginning in Shanghai on May 14.
