Athlete Bio

22-year-old Sao Paulo native Rony Gomes has become a contender at X Games but is still looking for his first medal after nine appearances. Gomes is an accomplished Vert and Big Air skater who helped bring vert back to Brazil -- his own ramp was completed in January 2012 and is now a hotspot for Brazilian skaters. He's talented at both lip tricks (heel and kickflips) and spins, including McTwists and 720s, and he features great amplitude. Rony spends as much time as he can in California, staying with his idol, fellow Brazilian Lincoln Ueda.
