Skateboard GB Announce National Skateboard Park Team

Skateboard GB is excited to announce their 2022 skateboard park team in the lead-up to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Selected after a comprehensive and open process which provided all British skateboarders with the opportunity to apply to be a team member. The Skateboard GB selection panel considered several criteria, including trick difficulty level, trick repertoire, competition results and performances.

The skateboarder’s ability to qualify or medal at Paris 2024 and their potential to be successful at future competitions such as the LA 2028 and Brisbane 2032 were also considered.

The team sees the return of Tokyo 2020 breakout star and Bronze medalist Sky Brown, as well as the first skateboarder to ever drop in at an Olympic Games, in the skateboard park discipline, Bombette Martin.

New team members include forty-nine-year-old vert skateboarding legend Andy Macdonald and this year’s Skateboard GB National Champion Lola Tambling.

At just twelve years old, Liverpool born Tommy Calvert is the youngest member of the team.
