One nation can qualify 12 (!) skateboarders for the Olympics? :yikes: I thought there were only going to be one men's event and one women's event..

2 events for both sexes. Maximum of three from each nation in each event.

2 x 3 x 2 = 12

I'm at least hoping for a combination of both, and not some sort of regular 'cool' t-shirt with jeans down to their knees. At least try to make it look a little bit Olympic..

I think there was a kid who preferred to be disqualified from the World Championships final last year rather than wearing a not cool helmet...if they try to introduce a standard uniform be ready for the #FreedomForSkaters movement.

And then a boycot, followed by skateboarding being removed already. Done.

Supposedly the ISSF are helping the WRS develop a new handbook showing how not to dress

So, I've heard a podcast with the technical director of the Brazilian street skateboard. He talked a little about that. He said that the sponsor sport brands of each skateboard federation are in contact with the athletes to provide them skate clothes. Then, they won't need to wear a uniform only with the country colors.

 

Also, there is a regulation for pictures in the skate, of course, without sponsors and any kind of offensive images.

 

As for the helmet, I don't know. The Brazilian Championship of Skate park there's a rule where under-18 skateboarders must to wear it to compite.
