McTwists & 12-Year-Old Girls

by The Editors on November 5, 2012

Yep. Apparently, Alana Smith became the second girl ever to do a McTwist. We’re not really into glorifying trick progression, but sure a 12-year-old girl landing a trick that guys have been doing for 28 years is good right? It happened at Saturday, November 3, 2012 at the “exposed” women’s skate contest at the YMCA in San Diego. Congrats, Alana. You’re good.

That is the worst back-handed complement I’ve ever heard. She’s 12, who knows how far she can push women’s skating? You don’t have to care about female skaters, but don’t be sarcastic and rude.
