July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - The 2020 summer Olympic Games, the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, take place in Tokyo, Japan.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games feature 339 events in 33 different sports, encompassing 50 disciplines.

From its humble roots in the youthful energy of 1940s America, skateboarding has finally reached the heady heights of the Olympic Games. Two disciplines will be contested by men and women – Park and Street.

It is the second time that Japan, and specifically Tokyo, has hosted the Summer Olympic Games – the first being in 1964.
