An eagerly awaited event
Skateboarding began in the late nineteen-forties or possibly the early fifties. At first, it was known as ‘sidewalk surfing’ and was a way of training on land when the sea was too dangerous or not wavy enough for surfing. It slowly became popular as an activity in its own right and by the beginning of the 21st century, it was estimated that there were over eleven million skateboarders worldwide, creating an internationally recognisable culture all of their own and attracting the attention of major sportswear brands. The organisers of the 2020 Games in Tokyo decided to feature both park and street skateboarding competitions and to select a total of twenty competitors (male and female) for this event. They will be judged according to a complex series of criteria, including height of jumps, speed, the originality and execution of the tricks and the agility of the performers. Expect to see top skateboarders such as American Nyjah Huston, Pedro Barros from Brazil and Aori Nishimura from the host country, and expect a huge demand for 2020 Games in Tokyo skateboarding tickets as excitement about this new event builds around the battle to be the first skateboarder ever to win a gold medal.
