Malmö, SWEDEN (September 7, 2018) – The last Pro Tour qualifier of the 2018 Vans Park Series Pro Tour season kicked off smoothly in Malmö, Sweden today, setting the tone for a decisive park terrain battle in the men's and women's division tomorrow. Catering to a mixed field of seasoned tour challengers and local Wildcards, the unique design of Kroksbäck Skatepark inspired competitors to get creative, resulting in high-speed lines by leading qualifier Tristan Rennie (USA), who managed to land a massive 540 and a difficult blunt slide transfer off the extension, over the spine. Rennie celebrated his first podium placement of the series in Brazil earlier this year, and secures his official invite to the World Championships.

In the women's competition, preliminary rounds ran directly as semi-finals with 22 competitors, producing noteworthy results for the Women's finals lineup. Still buzzing off her win in Huntington Beach, Kisa Nakamura (JPN) took the semis lead, demonstrating technical consistency and speed in a promising performance ahead of finals. Edged out of competition by only a few points, current world champion Nora Vasconcellos (USA) did not make the finals cut, leaving room for two tour challengers, Hunter Long (USA), 6th, and Arianna Carmona (USA), 8th, to compete in the finals round for their first time this season. Carmona and Long are the only two Challengers who can sneak into the World Championships lineup by potentially bumping out Mami Tezuka (JPN) from the fifth spot in the current global challenger rankings, but only if they place higher than Poppy Starr Olsen (AUS) and Sakura Yosozumi (JPN) in tomorrow's competition.

The 2018 VPS Pro Tour, Sweden Men's semis and Women's finals will re-commence on Saturday, September 8. Seizing their final opportunity to secure an invite to the VPS World Championships in China, advancing tour challengers from today's heats will compete against top-seeded VPS Select Pros and Tour Wildcards for a pivotal round of park terrain competition.
