(Skateboarding news) After the tremendous success of the Oi vert jam and the Skate generation, ESPN made the announcement that Brazil will be one of the five countries chosen to host the Global X Games in 2013.

More than 50 cities around the world competed to host this major sporting event. The structures of the Global X Games will be the same X Games Los Angeles for 18 years where athletes from all categories give the sweat, blood and life for which each event level maneuvers are exceeded and thus continue to bring about progress and for action sports.

Barcelona, Spain; Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil; and Munich, Germany, will join Aspen, Los Angeles and Tignes, France, in hosting an X Games event beginning in 2013.
"ESPN is giving athletes the opportunity to really chase their dreams, and the X Games are the most important and biggest events ever created for our sports," motorsports icon Travis Pastrana said in a statement. "The concept of bringing them to different places around the world is awesome, and I'm excited to see what it will do for action sports."

Brazil will hots in April 2013 the Mini Ramp International Championship at the side of the Iguaçu falls, the waterfalls of the Iguazu River located on the border of the Brazilian State of Paraná and the Argentine Province of Misiones.
