Don’t have to be a skater to appreciate how impressive this run by 13-year-old Japanese skater Onodera Ginwoo aka Gin Woo at the X-Games was, just listen to the reaction of the commentators and you’ll get a decent idea. Olympics.com spoke with top skater Jamie Foy about Gin Woo and he thinks he may be the next Nyjah Huston:

“The level he’s at is insane. He’s kind of in the Nyjah realm I would say because he does the most technical tricks and he does them very quick and he does them very consistently. I can’t wait to see his future. It’s going be scary.”

Big shoes to fill but its runs like this that have me thinking we will be seeing Gin Woo perched on top of a lot of podiums in years to come. Kid is unreal:
