    Amazing skill that few have for sure, after watching the videos. I can see this "sport" evolving like a few Olympic sports have done in last 20+ years:
    Synchronized diving competition
    Synchronized swimming competition
    Can you imagine synchronized break dancing competition?

      Unfortunately, we have to wait to 2024 for Breakdancing, but what the hell, we get skateboarding and sports climbing for 2020. Love that skateboarding on rails! There are also more wrestling like events, Judo + Karate. That can't be enough!

        Britain's national women's skateboarding champ is just 10-

        https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/47928156

        She will be 12 by Tokyo if she qualifies. Apparently, she will need to gain some more strength to perform at the level of the top competitors. She has a British father and a Japanese mother and is largely based in the US. She is also a surfer, apparently.

          I just saw a report that it will be added in 2024.

                    How is it any different from other subjectively judged "sports"?

                        I am real...it is different from gymnastics and it is not a sport and it should be in the World Break Dance championships and not cluttering up what was once a great sporting experience.

                          It is not.. If you cannot time it, measure it or play a contest by prescribed rules it does not belong in Olympics

                            Okie dokie, so we just trimmed diving and gymnastics from the Summer Olympics, along with figure skating from the winter Games!

                                Yep, and I say that having a niece I dearly love who was a two time Olympic gymnast ...let them have their own festival. .. and no style points in ski jumping.
