Beloved readers, as you all know, skateboarding has made its official debut at the Tokyo Olympics.

The sport features two disciplines: park and street. The former competition takes place on a skate park, which comprises a large bowl featuring curves and ramps. Park skateboarding sees high-altitude jumps, given the bowl's near-vertical sides.On the other hand, street skateboarding features elements with (you guessed it) street-like obstacles, such as benches, rails, steps, curbs, and more off which athletes perform their tricks.
