23 Olympic Sports That Skateboarders Would Dominate

Posted by Sean Bowes 9 years ago on December 2nd, 2013

As often as a pair of balls get sacked on a rail, the topic of Olympic skateboarding rears its ugly, gold-medal-brandished head. As if to drive the final nail in the coffin of winning the battle of is it or isn't it? an official sport. But really, who cares? It will probably never happen. In fact, professional skateboarders probably have a better chance of hanging up their boards and start taking archery lessons if they want a gold medal that doesn't have a Yoohoo logo on it. Or, dust off the ol' boxing gloves.

Recently, a photo that surfaced online got us at The Boardr talking. The photo, snapped by New York photographer Howard Schatz, compared a few dozen scantily clad Olympians to show their different body types along with the sports they play.We thought it would be fitting to see which event pro skateboarders might compete in. Here's what we came up with:

Ping Pong

Brian Hansen aka Slash
Chad Tim Tim (see Transworld's A Time To Shine)

Hurdles

Luis Tolentino
Aldrin Garcia
Larry Perkins (snaps a 'clean' 50'' ollie)

Curling

Dylan Rieder
Mark Appleyard (you know, cuz he's Canadian...)
The Decenzos, Scott and Ryan

High Dive

Ali Boulala (Really Sorry)
Sammy Baca
Mark Appleyard (gold-medal-worthy laybacks)

Hammer Throw

Jake Duncombe

Shot-put

Jon Dickson

200M Breast Stroke

Austyn Gillette

Javelin

Tony Hawk

Women's Volleyball Spectator

Fred Gall
