Skateboarding Olympic Pitch!?

“These are the sports that define cool”

Really? Is this a joke? Skateboarding in the Olympics… They’ve got it all wrong. I wonder how many actual skaters were involved in this pitch. Couldn’t think of a worse direction for skating… Check it out, I guess it’s worth a few laughs:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpFpmgu1zug

    oh no that would suck so much if skating was in the olympics!!! there might actually be something worth watching and skateboarders might get rewarded for their talents!

    yeah maybe we would get more funding for skateparks and there might be some decent new facilities built around the world, creating jobs for skaters and helping to build the industry, but we wouldn’t be ‘cool’ anymore!!!

    you wouldnt be able to go down the road and skate a pissy curb without some yank commentator’s voice booming out, making your slappy noseslide sound like some blockbuster movie!

    SERIOUSLY though. wake the fuck up. Skateboarding already sold out completely years ago, your image is already prostituted by brands like nike, adidas and gap (you probably wear these brands as well). olympics would more than likely be a massive benefit to skateboarding on the whole and wouldnt make it any gayer than the x games and mountain dew bollocks does already.

    and skateboarding is a sport…

    sport
    spɔːt/
    noun
    noun: sport; plural noun: sports

    1.
    an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.
    “team sports such as soccer and rugby”
    synonyms: (competitive) game(s), physical recreation, physical activity, physical exercise;
    pastime
    “he takes part in a variety of sports”

    call it an art as well if you want but to be honest it doesn’t fit either category very well. a skateboarding competition however fits the above definition exactly

      Bullshit , fuck the Olympics .
      Yes , X-games + Nike etc have sneaked their way in . But NO , thats not a reason to say the Olympics is fine too now . Fuck the X-games. Fuck Nike , Fuck Gap .
      The Olympics needs us , we dont need them .

      And no , skating is not a sport . It´s not about competition . Even though competitions exist , 99.9% of skating has nothing to do with them , quite the contrary really.
      Thats why it´s different , thats why many of us started it . Lets try keep it that way . You sound like you gave up , fuck that too
