Pro skater Paul Rodriguez and young boxing prospect Chantal Navarro talk about their love for sports and latino representation in their fields.
Both of them have a Latinx background and have paved the waved for people in their game. When Paul started skateboarding, the sport didn’t have many famous people of colour who had really made an impact. Paul showed the world that anyone could rise to the top of skating, no matter what their background was. Chantal says that there were lots of role models for her to look up to, but that she’s proud to be a part of that history herself.
Both of these athletes excelled at a very young age. Chantal is already taking the boxing world by storm, despite being just 15 years old. Paul made a name for himself in skating when he was 14 and he was a well respected figure by his early 20s. Seeing one generation inspire in the next in this video is really cool to watch and it’s also clear to see that Paul is in awe of Chantal’s ability and skill.
