Most 16-year-olds on a Thursday afternoon would be playing video games with friends, checking out their Facebook or MySpace pages, or watching videos on Youtube. Not Nyjah Huston. He’s competing in the X Games.
Sponsored by the skateboard company Element, Huston started skating when he was just 5 years old and began competing in the X Games when he was 11 in an event called Skateboard Street. He has earned silver medals for the years 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
