(CNN) - Sky Brown may only be 10 years old, but the pint-sized skateboarder, dancer and surfer has ambitions beyond her tender years.
Brown was named Thursday to the five-strong British skateboard team that hopes to reach the Olympics in Tokyo 2020.
If the team qualifies, Brown will be 12 when the Games begin. That would make her Britain's youngest-ever Olympian.
Born to a Japanese mother and a British father, Brown has already featured in a Nike campaign alongside Serena Williams and Simone Biles.
Her skateboarding skills have also racked up thousands of views on YouTube while she has 300,000 followers on Instagram.
But her dual nationality left her with a choice of who to compete for on the international stage.
Despite still being based in Japan, Brown told the AFP news agency and the BBC that she will choose to represent Great Britain because of its relaxed approach.
"The British Skateboarding Association, they told me 'no pressure, just have fun and get out there,'" Brown said in a video posted to the BBC Sport website Wednesday. "So that's why I chose England."
The multi-talented Brown has already competed in full-aged skate competitions and won the girls competition at a World Cup skateboarding event in Tallinn, Estonia, last month.
She is also an accomplished surfer and was crowned the first-ever champion of "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors" alongside J.T. Church last year.
Skateboarding will appear at the Olympics for the first time in Tokyo, and Japan skate officials appeared keen to select Brown.
"We would have liked Sky to skate for Japan, but it's her choice and we wish her luck," Takehisa Miyazawa, chairman of the skateboarding committee of the Japan Roller Sports Federation, told AFP.
Miyazawa also said that Japan has good depth in women's skateboarding, pointing to teenagers Sakura Yosozumi and Kisa Nakamura.
"I'm confident Japan will do well at the Olympics," he added.
