The 2016 Summer Olympics will be held in Rio de Janeiro Brazil on August 5 to August 21 and the 2020 Summer Olympics will be held in Japan.
I had have always been a supporter of extreme games and I just don’t see the reason why skateboarding is not included in 2016 Summer Olympics while snowboarding was embraced in SOCHI 2014 Winter Olympics. Although there is a big chance that it may already be added in the Olympics in year 2020, I am still not happy because our kids are not getting any younger to wait for another four years. Nevertheless, kids, let us focus and keep practicing, anyway, we have the X games and other extreme event competitions to prepare.
More and more Antipoleños and Antipolo visitors are now indulged in skateboarding, either for recreation or sport. Skateboarding is really something to do for fun instead of being preoccupied on indoor games, particularly into computers and mobile gadgets. Skateboarding activity or sport develops mental focus and body connection or I may just say it as an exercise for “Mind, Body and Soul”.
It is now the best time to support and encourage these kids on this kind of sport while they are still drowsed of excitement on the past Winter Olympics and they are also motivated by the nations only participant, Michael Christian Martinez who participated in Figure Skating Event.
Skateboarding in Daang Bakal Road
The skaters preferred the Daang Bakal Road because of its moderate slope and curves. The road is also lightly being used by vehicles because it is blocked on one end. Vehicles are aware of the activities of skaters, bikers, and joggers so they usually drive slower and very carefully. The road is also shaded with tall trees throughout the day.
This is just a temporary place for practicing skateboarding skills and styles until somebody or some organization may be kind enough to sponsor a better venue .
