Olympic skateboarding funding still to be be confirmed

Skateboarding, along with the other new Olympic Sports, will have to wait another year to find out how much funding may be available from UK Sport.

The qualification process, format and other rules for Skateboarding in Tokyo 2020 will be confirmed by the International Skateboarding Federation in 2017. After this confirmation we will have a better idea of medal potential.

We will be meeting with UK Sport early in 2017 to develop our strategy and so that both parties can familiarise themselves with each other and create a good working relationship so that we will be in a strong position to send some British skaters to Tokyo.

We are very excited that we have this opportunity to take part in the Olympic Games and are encouraged that UK Sport are supportive of this inclusion and we look forward to working with them in the future.
