Tom Schaar & Sakura Yosozumi Conquer the São Paulo Field for Vans Park Series Brazil Victory

São Paulo, BRAZIL (June 2, 2018) – Vans Park Series closed out the first 2018 Pro Tour event of the season with an unprecedented energy in the stadium. With well over 5,000 spectators in attendance, the Vans Park Series Brazil event yielded exceptional performances by winners Tom Schaar and Sakura Yosozumi. With tense score exchanges happening heat after heat in the final, VPS Select Pro and podium veteran Tom Schaar secured an early lead with the highest run score of the entire event, producing his signature colossal airs in clean fast-paced runs, while Brazilian icon Pedro Barros kept the crowd on edge, executing a powerful air-heavy run with only minutes left in the final to finish in second. Finally, Tristan Rennie celebrates his first VPS podium appearance ever, attacking every wall with ease for a third place finish.

“I’m just stoked I’m down here in Brazil, it’s amazing, this is the greatest crowd I’ve ever seen,” said VPS Brazil Men’s winner Tom Schaar. When asked about the race to world champion, Schaar responded, “I’m going to take this all in, contest by contest, and see where I land.”

In the Women’s division, Japanese pro Sakura Yosozumi conquered the park course with expert skill, landing a jaw-dropping backside noseblunt revert, and using every inch of the park to land multiple tricks one after the other. Yosozumi surpassed the field in Semi’s as an Open Qualifier and emerged as the victor of the Women’s Brazil event. Runner up and the undisputable crowd favorite, Brazilian Yndiara Asp demonstrated lightning speed and variety to outrun her peers, while the energy from the crowd kept her spirits high. In third, VPS Select Pro and the first-ever park terrain women’s world champ (2016), Brighton Zeuner returns to the podium, wowing the crowd with her unique style and creative trick selection.
