About Vanessa

Vanessa Torres won the first-ever XG women's street event (then called Park) in 2003 and added silver in 2004. She returned to the podium at Austin 2015 with bronze and followed with another bronze at XG Oslo 2016. She credits her sobriety with a renewed passion for the sport, and, with added flair to her tricks, she is a podium threat. In late 2016, Torres tore her ACL while filming for the all-female video "Quit Your Day Job," but has taken on surgery and rehab with full commitment. "I have overcome so much in my life and I feel stronger than I've ever felt," says Torres, who started skating again in the spring of 2017.
