Published on 20 August, 2018 at 4:06 pm By

Aliqqa Noverry, a nine-year-old skateboarder is the youngest competitor at this year’s Asian Games which are taking place in Jakarta. The talented girl knows nothing more than doing what she is best at – Skateboarding! If one has to talk about her speed, she can leave the biggest of her competitors behind. Aliqqa Noverry has got good support from her family however the fact that she is the youngest athlete of this lot, gave them a shock.

She loves going fast and is an expert in tricks. The 1.30 metres (4ft, 2in) tall trailblazer has no dearth of confidence and skills.

 

 

During an interview, she recently talked about her game and what skateboarding means to her:

“My family supports me but they’re also very surprised knowing that I’m the youngest athlete here. Being the youngest makes me a little nervous but also more motivated. But my friends think it’s a bit unfair that I get to skip school. I think I would like to skate in Tokyo.”

 

 

Not only this, Aliqqa Noverry is also positive about being a part of the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. She clearly indicated that she wants to get as much experience as possible.

Proud mother Nin Hardi is a bit nervous about her daughter competing with boys twice her age. She explained:

 

“Of course I worry. That’s why I never leave her alone and always go with her to practice. If she gets ice cream, she’s all pumped up.”

 

 

Talking about the injuries she usually gets while skateboarding, she said:

 

“I don’t like the injuries. I twisted my ankle badly once and I couldn’t walk for five days. I can get a bit traumatized by a trick if it injures me.”

Aliqqa’s coach is completely supportive of this young prodigy participating at the Asian Games. Yudi Toengkagie (the coach) mentioned that Aliqqa could be moody sometimes, and when she is in good mood, she never gives up. As Aliqqa sports her red Indonesian sweatshirt, she blissfully explains that she wants to enjoy herself. Aliqqa Noverry is certainly doing what she loves, is that the same with you?
