LOWE AND DA SILVA CLAIM TOP IN-LINE SKATE HONORS

International line-up reigns at Park during Menís and Womenís Final

LOS ANGELES ≠ A host of European competitors stormed past two-time defending champion American Jaren Grob to claim all three medals in the Aggressive In-Line Skate Park Menís Final. Representing Brazil, six-time X Games gold medallist Fabiola da Silva snagged the gold in the Aggressive In-Line Skate Park Womenís Final for the first time since X Games VI in 2000.

German contender Bruno Lowe took control of the contest on his second run to post an impressive 90.25, finishing just ahead of silver medallist Stephane Alfano (87.75), and well beyond two-time defending Aggressive In-Line Skate Park gold medallist Jaren Grob (72.75), who finished 12th.

"In-Line Skate is not very popular in Europe," said Lowe, who won his first X Games gold after coming in second place at X Games VIII in 2002, "I hope today can help change that."

"Itís cool to have Europeans in the top three positions," said Bronze medallist Sven Boekhorst, a native of the Netherlands, echoing Loweís sentiment on a day when the highest-ranking American in the menís contest was fifth ranked Ben Weis (83.00). The speedy seventeen-year-old Stephane Alfano, of France, captured the Aggressive In-Line Skate Park Menís silver, nailing a breathtaking Corkscrew 900 to solidify his place among the medal-winners.

After a disappointing first run, Fabiola da Silva went all out on her second run (60.50), immediately landing a 540 into a flawless forward 360, lacing up her run with an Alley-oop Soul. Jenny Logue, a native of Great Britain, finished a close second with a score of 59.75. Martina Svobodova, who won gold at X Games VIII, nabbed the bronze medal with a score of 58.00.

"My first run was okay, but my second run I gave everything," said da Silva after being awarded the gold, "My Dad is not here today, but he is up there watching me and I am glad for that."
