Women's Street World Championships In Rome - Coming Up!

Thursday, May 27, 2021



Get ready!  Skateboarding has just one more Olympic Qualifying event before the 2020 / (2021) Tokyo Olympics in July - where skateboarding will make it's debut!

Rome, Italy is all set to host the Street Skateboarding World Championships from May 30th - June 6th. Over 200 athletes are expected to compete. The comp will take place at the Foro Italico sporting complex. Skaters from 40 countries will have their last shot here, to secure their spot for Tokyo.

Finals will take place on June 6th and we will provide updates on how to watch LIVE as we get closer - so stay tuned!

If you tuned into watch The Dew Tour Qualifiers last weekend, you know the women in street are battling it out - there were some surprises going into the finals (Samarria Brevard not advancing) and on podium (Leticia Bufoni, always a favorite did make podium this time). We expect more ups and downs here, the women are hungry and know this is their final chance if they want to get to Tokyo! 

 **The prize purse for Rome will be $200,000 USD, split evenly across both genders.



If you are wondering why Women's (and Men's) Park isn't having a World Championship as well (leaving Dew Tour as the only and final qualifying event) we don't have a great answer. World Championships for Park were quietly cancelled last month and no rescheduling was made, leaving park skaters with only one event in which to qualify for an Olympic berth. 

It doesn't seem all that fair, does it?
