Orange County, Calif. —  The Tokyo 2020 Skateboarding Commission, a collaboration between the Fédération Internationale de Roller Sports (FIRS) and the International Skateboarding Federation (ISF), is proud to announce the addition of Skateboarding into the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. At a press conference today in Rio de Janeiro, the IOC named Skateboarding as one of five new sports making their historic Olympic debuts.
