Filipina skaters Didal, Means chosen for Women's Battle at the Berrics

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines will be well-represented in the inaugural staging of the Women's Battle at the Berrics as Margielyn Didal and Christiana Means were selected to compete. 

Didal and Means will vie with 14 other skateboarders in a bracket-style tournament of SKATE, which has rules based on the basketball game of HORSE. 

In SKATE, a participant will try to perform a trick and the opponent must duplicate the move. 

If a participant doesn't complete the trick performed by the other bet, the skater gets a letter, starting with the letter S. The skater who completes the word SKATE gets booted out of the competition and the other participant advances to the next round.  

Joining the two Filipina are Brazil's Leticia Bufoni, Eliana Sosco, Monica Torres, and Karen Feitosa, Australia's Liv Lovelace, and the Netherlands' Candy Jacobs .

USA's Lacey Baker, Samarria Brevard, Jenn Soto, Mariah Duran, Nika Washington, Adriane Sloboh, Monica Torres, Alexis Sablone, and Chelsea Castro complete the roster of participants. –
