Like it or not, skateboarding is coming to Tokyo in 2020. No matter what side of the fence you sit on, we are all wondering who? Many skaters have been very vocal about wanting absolutely no part of the 2020 games. Still, others have said that they are open to the possibility. But this week, Jekem Magazine released a video confirming the first official skater.
Luis Tolentino, has stated that he will be a future Olympian. He will be skating for his home country of the Dominican Republic. Since Luis is one of the nicest guys in the NYC skate scene we know, we couldn’t be happier for him. Congrats Luis!
