    The New King of Pop! 19-Year-Old Aldrin Garcia Sets New World Record

     

    A new world record was set. Aldrin Garcia landed a 45” high ollie in the finals of the Maloof High Ollie Challenge claiming the $10,000 cash prize and unseating Danny Wainwright who has held the world record of 44.5 inches since 2000. Garcia also beat out pros including Torey Pudwill, Levi Brown, Luis Tolentino, Steve Nesser, Austyn Gillette and Anthony Schultz.

     

    Held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center as part of the new Ride Unltd. action sports initiative at MAGIC, the fashion industry’s largest event, 14 skaters made it to the finals. But it came down to two skaters: 22-year-old Christian Malouf from Tempe, Arizona and 19-year-old Aldrin Garcia from San Diego, Calif., who would compete for a new world record when the bar was raised to 45 inches.

     

    Check out my video  interview with Aldrin Garcia.
