Annie Guglia Shreds at SLS Los AngelesJuly 29, 2019
This passed weekend, Annie skated alongside the best male and female pro skaters in the world, at the Los Angeles stop of the Street League Skateboarding Tour.
In the city that takes credit for the birthing of the now Olympic sport, the SLS Women’s Semifinal took place Saturday night with Annie being the only Canadian athlete among the couple dozen others from across the globe.
With Annie skating on a sprained ankle, the fact that she was able to land all her planned tricks is a victory in and of itself. Although she skated through the pain and had the crowd and fans on her side throughout all her runs, she along with skate fans everywhere watched in amazement as Rayssa Leal became the first ever 11 year old to take home the SLS LA trophy.
