“I skate because I f*****g love it”

As most skateboarding fans know, Nyjah Huston is one of the biggest names around. Leading most to assume he’d be a favourite to pick up a medal at the Olympic games this week. Especially, after his previous 12 X Game wins. Many would think this experience in competitions would guarantee at least a medal for the skate veteran.
