MANILA, Philippines – Her event hasn't even started yet but it seems like Filipina skateboarder Margielyn Didal is already taking a win in Tokyo after meeting one of the sport's greatest stars Tony Hawk.

The Cebuana posted a photo of her and Hawk on her Instagram while she continues her preparation for the women's street skateboarding heats scheduled Monday.

The 53-year-old American made headlines when he showed up in Tokyo as a non-participant.

Hawk took a spin around the Olympics skate park in what would be the sport's first appearance in the Summer Games.
