She may be the daughter of three-time Commonwealth Games gold medal-winning swimmer Justin Norris, but nine-year-old Sabre Norris, from New South Wales, Australia, has already made a name for herself by landing her first skateboard trick, a 540-degree spin.

Here's the story in her own words:

"My skating all started because I wasn't allowed to get a bike because we don't have a garage. So my mum bought us skateboards instead. I started from rolling down my dad's business car park. I've been skating for about 3 years. My favorite trick is a 540. I watched Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins do it on the internet, and I just had to do it. That was my 75th attempt of the day. Every time I tried one and didn't land it I put a rock on the table. It ended up being my 75th rock. I was frothing. I did some 720s too. Not proper. I called it 540 to revert to splat. I didn't cry though. My goal is to do 100 of them before this Saturday. I'm up to 75. I still can't ride a bike, but I can do a 540."
