Skateboarding Qualification to Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games

Do you assume he wont be able to get to top 3 on his own?

 

 

he's not that used to this kind of competition that he just can't be good enough to beat the tour regulars without the help of biased judges (he's not even a skateboarding Park and/or Street specialist, he used to be good only on Vert, which is quite different from the other 2 disciplines in terms of required skills)...

 

if he's really capable of a top 3 at the world champs with no other competition contested in the last few years, then it would only mean that skateboarding doesn't have any decent strenght in depth and doesn't deserve at all to be included in the Olympic program, without even wasting time to speculate on all the other arguments against it...it would be just a question of talent involved in it)...

 

p.s. personally, I think he's overestimated also as a snowboarder and 2 of his 3 Olympic Gold medals were really gifted to him (Turin 2006 for sure...Pyeongchang 2018, I'm not fully convinced he should win, yet)...

New update on olympic racing of Skateboarding after Oi Stu Open in Rio de Janeiro.     It's unbelievable the incapacity of WS to provide a decent World Ranking. Another time they change

Update after the last event of the first season at Skate Park.     Skate Park and Street - WC Park São Paulo.xlsx

The IOC can be a bit hypocritical with their universality rule. Look at coxed eights rowing. As much as I love the sport I acknowledge that the event is slowly dying yet it remains on the schedule.

A little bit old this video, but I've not seen it yet. So....
 

He hasn't participated in any competition so far. And the next World Championship here in Brazil in September is the last tournament of the first season of qualification events at Skate Park. If he doesn't get the podium at the World Championship next year, he'll have lost one opportunity to get points since the first season.
