Trans skateboarder who won first prize against teen is a combat vet, dad who was rejected from the Olympics 

He beat a 13-year-old girl at a women's skating competition after the Olympics rejected him for too much testosterone 


 

The 29-year-old biological male who came in first place at a New York women's skateboarding competition is a father of three and a combat veteran who was previously rejected from the Olympics for having too much testosterone.

Ricci Tres, who also goes by Ricci And Tres, won over Shiloh Catori, a 13-year-old girl who is ranked 133rd in the Boardr Global Ranks, which are based on performance in skateboarding competitions. Tres, by comparison, sits at 838 in the rankings.

Tres took the top title in the women's division of The Boardr Open, taking home $500.

"I have three kids, I'm married, I did my time in the military, I own a company. I've decided that I like being pretty and cute," Tres said in an interview about skateboarding last year. "So everything that goes with that is female. I love female bodies. I think it's a work of art."

Tres does not intend to medically transition outside hormone therapy.
