Lacey Baker competes in the women's street skateboarding final at X Games 18 on June 29, 2012 in Los Angeles.

 

Lacey Baker was looking for her second X Games gold medal in skateboarding, but just couldn’t top the performance by Leticia Bufoni of Brazil.

Baker, 26, won her fourth silver medal at X Games Norway on Friday in Oslo. She was the last skater to go and entered her third and final run in second place, but although she improved on her top mark of 78.00 to score a 78.33, it wasn’t enough to beat Bufoni’s 84.66. The Brazilian, skating with a broken foot, won her first X Games gold medal since 2013.

Baker won the gold in 2014.

Skateboarding will make its Olympic debut in 2020 in both park and street disciplines. The street discipline incorporates rails, curbs, slopes, steps and other features in the course. In the X Games competition, finalists get three runs to try to get the highest score.

Baker, from Covina, California, was featured a year ago in Rolling Stone magazine as one of the top female skateboarders in the world and is one of the top American hopefuls to join the sport’s first-ever Olympic team. She won the Street League Skateboarding Super Crown World Championship in 2016 and in 2017 was nominated for an ESPY in the best female action sports athlete category.

The men’s street skateboarding final will be held on Sunday.
