Comment News (Gosnells) - - Sport -

THE King of the Hill Skate­board­ing grand fi­nal at­tracted 50 com­peti­tors who bat­tled it out in swel­ter­ing heat at Mills Park Skate Plaza in Beck­en­ham on March 4.

Qual­i­fy­ing rounds were held through­out Fe­bru­ary at Gos­nells, Wil­let­ton, Belmont and Ro­ley­stone Skate Parks.

In front of 1000 spec­ta­tors over five weeks the finest scoot­ers and skaters showed off their heart- stop­ping best moves for cash prizes.

The event was a pro­ject de­signed to raise aware­ness of men­tal health is­sues and re­duce the neg­a­tive stigma of seek­ing help, par­tic­u­larly among young males aged 12 to 24.
