The Case for Olympic Skateboarding
I often get asked, do you think skateboarding should be in the Olympics?
I respond with YES!
I believe skateboarding and the Olympics are a great fit. The coverage from the Olympics will showcase the diversity, creativity, and life lessons taught by skateboarding. It has the potential to bring skateboarding to countries that do not currently have it and improve it in less fortunate ones.
As a US Marine, I conducted two tours of duty in Afghanistan and to see that skateboarding has been introduced to the people of Afghanistan, just warms my heart. See, I believe that Olympic Skateboarding will fuel movements like Skateistan all around the world.
We all know that SkateboardingSaves and Olympic Skateboarding is just another platform to showcase the power of skaters in every clime and place. But hey, this is just my opinion, and you know what they say about opinions…
So, let me ask you the same question; Do you think Olympic Skateboarding should be an Olympic event?
Comment below with your opinion.
Oh, and by the way, Olympic Skateboarding has been approved for the 2024 games in Paris and is going to be epic in the 2028 games in LA. Y’all hold on, it is going to be one hell of a ride.
