MANSFIELD’S skate girl extraordinaire, Hayley Wilson, has just returned from the USA where she represented Australia in the “Wheels of Fortune” Street Skateboarding event in Seattle.

On this performance, Wilson has been nominated as the Sportsperson of the Year, April nominee.

In Wilson’s first pro-am event she was thrilled to have the opportunity to meet and skate against the top street skateboarders from right across the world.

Hayley was the third youngest competitor in the pro-am event on the Sunday and was excited to compete against the world’s best professionals including 2016 X Games gold medallist Pamela Rosa, Brazil, and X games medallists Lacey Baker and Vanessa Torres, USA.
