New dates for Tokyo 2020 have been announced. The Olympic Games will be celebrated exactly one year from their originally planned dates: July 23 to August 8, in 2021. You can view the full press release from the IOC here.
It is the hope that moving the dates this far in advance protects the health of the athletes and everyone involved, supports the containment of the COVID-19 virus and safeguards the interests of all Olympic athletes.
With these new dates in mind, World Skate will continue to work with all stakeholders on updating the suspended qualification system and provide information as it becomes available. We’re looking forward to the summer of 2021 and getting back to skateboarding as soon as possible!
