UPDATE: USA Skateboarding Unveils the United States’ Olympic Team



We’re a little over a year away from skateboarding’s Olympic debut at the 2020 Tokyo Games. Given the limited amount of time between now and then, it’s a bit surprising that we don’t know who will be representing the United States yet. That’s about to change on March 19 when USA Skateboarding unveils the U.S. Olympic skate team at an event in San Diego. Even the strongest opponent of skateboarding’s inclusion in the Olympics has to be a little bit curious about which 16 skaters are included on this list. Head over to Shop-Eat-Surf to read the full press release about the event. We’ll update with the list of names on the 19th.
