Brown, who was hoping to become Britain’s youngest summer Olympian in Tokyo, has skull fractures and broke her left wrist and hand.

Sky posted a video on Instagram, saying she was “going to push even harder” when she returns to skateboarding, which will make its Olympic debut in the postponed Tokyo Games.

Sky says she doesn’t normally post about her falls because she wants people to see the fun in what she does, but added that fans shouldn’t worry about her because “it’s OK to fall sometimes. I’m going to push boundaries for girls with my skating and surfing.”

“My helmet and arm saved my life,” she added. “This will not stop me. I am going for gold in Tokyo 2021. Stay strong. Stay positive.”

“Sky landed head-first off a ramp on her hand,” said her father Stewart.

“When she first came to hospital, everyone was fearful for her life. Sky had the gnarliest fall she’s ever had and is lucky to be alive,” he said.

“Sky remains positive and strong, the whole medical team is shocked to see her positivity.” He added.
