Just 15 Hilarious Tweets About Skateboarding At The Olympics

Yeah...I totally watch skateboarding for the beauty of the sport.

Beloved readers, as you all know, skateboarding has made its official debut at the Tokyo Olympics.

The sport features two disciplines: park and street. The former competition takes place on a skate park, which comprises a large bowl featuring curves and ramps. Park skateboarding sees high-altitude jumps, given the bowl's near-vertical sides.

On the other hand, street skateboarding features elements with (you guessed it) street-like obstacles, such as benches, rails, steps, curbs, and more off which athletes perform their tricks.

Most of us may not know too much about the high-intensity yet somehow also laid-back sport, and we're just here for the fun of it. Oh, and the sick outfits and equally sick athletes.

And also moments like this — which are just absolutely wild to behold by someone (like me) who can barely hold their own on a Penny board.
