Olympic Games- Rio 2016

Another four years have passed and the torch has lit the arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Michael Phelps will lead Team USA as he returns for his fifth Olympics. Along with Phelps, Carmelo Anthony is set to lead the USA Men’s Basketball team.


As of yesterday, a few more sports were added to the Olympic Games. In Tokyo 2020 there will be sports such as baseball/softball, sports climbing, surfing, karate, and skateboarding. This movement sparked the excitement among many athletes around the world. Within the next four years, they will have the chance to qualify and represent their country in these newly added sports.


The Olympic committee saw this as a great opportunity to involve the youth and a younger generation to compete with other countries in 2020. As of now, Street League Skateboarding is currently the main source of street skateboarding which includes Brazil’s native skaters Luan Oliveira and Leticia Bufoni.
