Pedro Barros, 15, stunned the X Games viewership when he took down long-time Skateboard Park veteran Andy MacDonald and captured X Games gold.
The Brazilian native broke a string of repeating champions in X Games skateboard events and amazed spectators as he dominated the skateboard park even last night at L.A. Live.
Barros captured the imagination of many with the hope that new, fresh crop of X Gamers are about to take over the current circuit dominated by veterans.
Look inside for video to see how he got it done.
Barros was already in contention for X Games gold after earning the top qualifier's spot on Friday night.
On Sunday, Barros nailed the skateboard park with numerous 540s and other winning moves.
Barros was tied with veteran Andy MacDonald for much of the event, but perception of a repetitive routine from MacDonald helped open the door for Barros to claim gold.
Barros is one of the young emerging faces of the X Games and he let it be known that X Gamers should expect more big performances from teenagers in the future.
We're young, so we have more energy and get more hyped up," Barros said afterward, referring to the youth explosion that marked the final results (ESPN.com).
Barros broke the mold with his win in Skateboard Park. Barros became the first X Gamer to win gold who was not yet born when the X Games debuted in 1995.
The 15-year-old Barros is not the lone teenager in competition for medals at this year's X Games.
Curren Caples, 14, did not medal but was among the early leaders in Skateboard Park.
However, 17-year-old Kevin Kowalski did take home the bronze in the event.
