I don't know whether this is a good or a bad thing for skateboarding. Its just not a sport that I think should be there IMO. Just the Olympic Committee latching on to something trendy and cool to up their image a bit and bring it up to date.

Slalom or downhill racing are the two skateboard disciplines that would work as they are at least races and measureable by timing equipment and more akin to the kind of sports that are already established at Olympic Games.

As for the park and street competitions that is all based on a judges impression and without a standard trick list or routine how would they actually accurately judge the runs. I know it could be the same as the current crop of competitions - Street League, X Games, Vans Park Series but they aren't what I think of as Olympic Sports which with very few exceptions are measurable in some way that even the lay man who knows nothing about skateboarding will understand.

Wes - Start working on that Olympic Graphic now - Don't forget the SKULLS!!!

[rofl] If they have the $ I got the time..   Yea I saw the comment "some were suggesting skateboarding may not be a high enough level of competition to be in the Games." If Snowboarding is skating is I would think?

Does this mean we are all "athletes" now?
