Chris Cole wins the Street League Super Crown World Championships
On Sunday, August 25th, the top eight Street League skateboarders competed in the final and arguably most important event in the Street League season.
The eight finalists competing at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. were Chris Cole, Nyjah Huston, Paul Rodriguez, Sean Malto, Torey Pudwill, Luan Oliveira, Mikey Taylor and Shane O'Neill.
Chris Cole eventually won the Street League Super Crown Season Finale. 200,000 dollars, the championship Nixon watch and ring, and the title as 2013 Tour Champ. It was down to the wire with Njah Huston (second place) and Paul Rodriguez. Cole landed a kickflip backside noseblunt-slide, fakie ollie frontside bluntslide, and a backside 270 to noseblunt-slide to give him extremely high scores (multiple 9 clubs) in the impact section. After his last attempt, Nyjah was sitting in second, less than one point below Cole. It was up to Paul and his last try to best them both. P-Rod went for a switch kickflip backside tailslide down the hubba but bailed it. It was Chris' second win this year (first one was in Munich). [via] The final results were as follows:
