There's been recent talk of including skateboarding in the Olympics as soon as the London 2012 games. Do you think it makes the Olympic cut?
Tough call. I'm a big action sports fan, but I would like to see a couple other sports become Olympic sports before skateboarding. I wouldn't be against it though. I love watching skateboarding and it would definitely be huge for the sport.
Yeah, seems to be a hard decision between evolving/growing over time or maintaining tradition. Maybe it is inevitable in the long run... but I don't want to see to much of a merge between the X Games and the Olympics.
The talk of it being included in 2012 is over though--no skateboarding for the London Games: No More Olympic Dreams for Skateboarding
I don't think skateboarding is olympic games worthy...at least not yet. I don't mean to knock the sport, but I do mean to say that the sport needs to evolve a bit and gain a broader audience before being considered as an Olympic event.
