For me it was a huge surprise that the :HUN Eurosport had a :HUN skateboarder as a guest commentator. He and his wife apparently do it at a competitive level (it is safe to assume they are not part of the world elite...)

Among others it turned out from the broadcast that his wife is big friends with the Austrian competitor in the women's, hahaha.

They couldn't bother hiring someone from the skateboard world? Here there was like 3 former skateboarders commenting :lol:

They seem to be using three people. Ed Leigh and Tim Warwood who normally commentate on freestyle skiing and snowboard. In addition they have Mark Churchill who I think is their skateboard expert.

The BBC uses the same commentator for both sports which seems to support your argument.

Polish Eurosport uses the same commentator for skateboarding which has worked on freestyle skiing (slopestyle, half-pipe & big air) in the last decade. He's actually a former snowboarder and probably will also comment BMX racing at the Games. But he can say all those "backside cork switch grab" words fluently and it's clear he knows exactly what he's talking about :p

13 years old Brazilian silver medalist Rayssa Leal arrived home to find a lawyer she didn't know had trademarked her nickname 'Little Fairy' to prevent unscrupulous business people from taking advantage of the skateboarder.
