Registration to the Global Open Qualifiers in London is now available

The World Skate SLS London stop, the first skateboarding event ever qualifying for the Olympics, is now approaching and it's time for the NGBs to register their skaters to the Open Qualifiers: this will be the first chance to earn points for the World Skateboarding Ranking (WSR) and get closer to Tokyo, so the expectations are very high.

As for the Seeding Rules, each country can register up to 6 skaters - 3 women and 3 men - to the Global Open Qualifiers: NGBs can register their skaters here starting from April 5th to May 5th


In the Global Open qualifiers, skaters will compete in maximum 3 skaters, 3 minutes single jam session format. Event phases after the Global Open Qualifier will be run using the Olympic contest format. Each Skater will perform 2 runs and 5 Tricks; the best 4 scores from runs or tricks will be added to give the total round score.

Top 12 women from Global Open Qualifier will advance into Semifinals and meet the top 18 skaters from 2018 World Skate SLS World Championship: Top 8 women will advance to Final.

Top 10 men from Global Open Qualifier will advance into Quarter Finals to meet the skaters ranked from 21st to 38th in 2018 World Championship and the best 4 skaters, not already pre-seeded, from the SLS Ranking prior to the last World Championship. From the Quarter Finals, the top 10 men advance to Semifinals to meet the top 20 men from the 2018 World Skate SLS World Championship: only top 8 skaters go to Final.
