A Launceston eight-year-old has shocked more senior competitors on Saturday in an Australian Skateboarding League national final.
Mia Sice started out in fifth on Friday in the semi-finals of the under-14 female category in Melbourne.
But the plucky Larmenier Catholic Primary School grade 3 pupil saved the best for the final to take out third overall on her title debut.
Sice, who was the youngest at the Australian Skateboard League two-day event, qualified last year first in the state, but decided against competing over her young age.
But another 12 months on, she was rapt in the decision to take on some of Australia's best up-and-coming skateboard prospects.
"I have had the best two days skating and making friends at the ASL national finals," Sice wrote on her Instagram page.
"Stoked to place 3rd tonight in u14 females. I loved skating with all the rad finalist girls, everyone shredded."
Sice was also one of three Launceston skateboarders who qualified for the titles.
Brendon Hill has taken out another top-10 finish in the open males competition.
The 34-year-old veteran of the sport is also Sice's coach.
Jay Casey also had a solid two days of competition to finish inside the top 20 of the under-12 category.
