Taking advantage of the visibility that the Olympics brought to the sport, the veteran of the skate parks looks favorably upon the generation of Rayssa Leal, the “fairy” and Olympic medalist. According to her, everything changed after the Olympic competitions in Tokyo.

“It was a surreal life lesson. I really want to go to Paris to live this experience again. It’s great to be that figure for them [nova geração] that I didn’t have”.

Also in skateboarding since the age of 14 – and now 28 – Leticia Bufoni also spoke about the pressure of being the most experienced and also about her perfectionism, which sometimes ends up getting in the way when competing.

“I try to get it through my head that I’m not 13 anymore. I don’t have more time and time to walk 7 hours a day. This pressure helps me, but it hinders me. I had a lot of anxiety at the Olympics, I couldn’t sleep the night before to compete.”

“My focus is still skateboarding,” said Bufoni, who now shares his time as an athlete with his businesswoman. Even though the sport comes first, the skater says that nowadays she spends a lot of time in meetings and calls. “Until 2, 3 years ago it wasn’t like that. My concern was the gym, skateboarding and food. Today it has changed, I don’t always have so much time to skate,” he said.
