The Olympics’ first-ever skateboarding champion Yuto Horigome is dropping an NFT to commemorate the moment. The gold medalist is releasing the NFT in conjunction with FWENCLUB, a new digital and physical collectibles creations platform. The NFT arrives as a digital sculpture dubbed “The Golden 22.”
The piece celebrates the moment the 220year-old became a work champion, capturing Horigome performing his signature trick. The move even landed him his first cover on Thrasher Magazine and a gold medal at the debut skateboarding event at the Tokyo Olympics. Only one piece is available, and the NFT is also metaverse-ready. It can easily be integrated into all aspects of the digital world, and the owner can use it to create or publish digital media of any kind.
Horigome released a statement saying: “Age 22 was the best year of my life so far. To celebrate, I’m teaming up with FWENCLUB to release my first ever NFT. It is a digital sculpture that captures the trick that helped me win the Olympics and all the special moments of this year. You can own “The Golden 22” version of me and even take me to the metaverse. As I bid farewell to this incredible year, I am so excited to memorialize all my achievements and share it with the world.”
“The Golden 22” NFT will be sold on FWENCLUB for five days. Check out the digital sculpture in the image and head over to FWENCLUB to find out more. In the meantime, stay tuned with The Culture Curators for more NFT drops and art news coming very soon.
