The pressure of competing on the grand stage in front of your hometown crowd would give most skaters the jitters -- but not Leticia Bufoni. The Brazilian knew she'd have her hands full with Women's Skateboard Street defending champion Alexis Sablone, but Bufoni hit the course with confidence, sealing the top podium. Bufoni was one of three Brazilians  including fellow skaters Bob Burnquist and Pedro Barros -- to earn gold medals this week.
