The International Olympic Committee (IOC) voted unanimously to include skateboarding in the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo. Stoked to see these athletes getting the recognition they deserve!

The Olympics will include both men’s and women’s park and street events, with a total of 80 skaters – 40 men and 40 women – competing in them.

Skateboarding was one of five sports added to the Olympic program, alongside sport climbing, karate, baseball/softball, and surfing. The 2020 Summer Olympics will take place in Tokyo from July 24 to August 9.
