Athletes traveled from around the world for a chance to earn valuable Olympic points for a chance to represent their country at the Tokyo Summer Games in 2020. With athletes from Brazil, Japan, Australia, Italy, Spain, and France, it’s quite evident that skateboarding has an international interest.
