Skateboarding at the 2020 Summer Olympics is an event to be held in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan (postponed to 2021[2] due to the COVID-19 pandemic).[3][4] It will be the debut appearance of skateboarding at the Summer Olympics. Skateboarding is one of five new sports added to the Olympic program for 2020[5] and has also been provisionally approved for the 2024 Summer Olympic games.[6]

Qualification

There are 80 quota spots available for skateboarding. Each event will have 20 competitors qualify: 3 from the World Championships, 16 from world rankings, and 1 from the host, Japan.[7]

Each National Olympic Committee (NOC), the governing body for each country’s Olympic goings-on, is allowed six men and six women for skateboarding, but no more than three athletes per gender per event.

Event qualification is currently managed by World Skate.
