Monster Energy congratulates team rider Lizzie Armanto on a strong third-place finish in Women’s Skate Park at the Vans Park Series event in Montréal, Canada, today. Cheered on by a capacity crowd at the newly built concrete skateboarding facility inside Montréal Olympic Park, the 26-year-old from Santa Monica, California, earned her podium spot in a highly contested finals featuring the world’s elite female park skateboarders.
Now in its fourth year, the Vans Park Series (VPS) is the official world championship format in park terrain skateboarding for men and women with a total $800,000 prize purse. This year, over 700 skateboarders from 39 countries will be battling for qualifier points at contests in Brazil, Canada, China, and France. The season’s top-ranking competitors will then compete for the men’s and women’s titles at the Vans Pro Skate Park Series World Championships in Salt Lake City, Utah, on September 7. At four locations on the global tour – namely Shanghai, Montréal, Paris and Salt Lake City – Vans will leave the competition facilities as permanent legacy parks for local skate communities to enjoy.
