Meet the Members of the First US Olympic Skateboarding Team
On Go Skateboarding Day, June 21, in Los Angeles, USA Skateboarding announced the 12 skaters headed to Tokyo to compete in the Olympics for the very first time. The skaters rolled up to the USA Skateboarding press conference in style as they donned Nike's Team USA skateboarding uniforms. During the press conference, each skater shared why they love the sport and what representing Team USA means to them.
At the Olympics, there will be two disciplines represented, street and park, each with men's and women's events. Street is held on a course that mimics a real street, while park is held on a hollowed-out, bowl-like course.
