Description

At the 129th IOC Session in Rio de Janeiro in 2016, skateboarding was approved as a new sport for the 2020/21 Tokyo Olympics. It was one of four new sports added to the Olympic Program for 2020, including karate, sport climbing, and surfing. Skateboarding will have two events for men and women, park and street. The sport is provisionally on the Olympic Program and its status will be re-evaluated after the Tokyo Games by the IOC Program Commission.

Skateboarding is governed by World Skate, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recognized organizational body for roller sports. World Skate resulted from the merger of the Fédération Internationale de Roller Sports (FIRS) and the International Skateboarding Federation (ISF) in September 2017, after the ISF’s involvement with the scheduled skateboarding events at the Japan 2020 Olympics was rejected.
