Oi Vert Jam 2012 Qualifiers
The qualifications for the semifinals of the 2012 Hi Vert Jam showed the new generation. Pedro Barros, 16, flew high and the skater was better qualified for the semifinals. Demanding, Pedro said he still needs to improve some details: "I want to add more difficult maneuvers and improve what I did today to get a spot in the final."

Italo Penarrubia, 21, who participates for the first time the Hi Vert Jam, secured second place in the standings. "Today was not our most experienced personnel, but tomorrow they will be. I think what I did wrong that caused my fall today to improve. I have to give at least a three 540. Tomorrow is the day" he added.
The youngest of the event, the American Mitchie Brusco, 15, took third place in the knockout stage. For the first time in Rio, was the joy in person: "I did everything I wanted. Tomorrow, I'll do the same tricks today, but in a different order. I'm enjoying the river, the view and atmosphere are great."
Results after the jump!!
