USA Skateboarding 22 Skaters Celebrate Team Announcement on 100 Days Out to the Tokyo Olympic Games

Vista, Calif. (April 14, 2021) — Together with Toyota and sponsors Nike SB, Tech Deck, Jessup Griptape and ProTec Helmets, USA Skateboarding—the U.S. governing body for skateboarding—announced the 22 members of the 2021 USA Skateboarding National Team. The national team skateboarders qualified based on performance in international-level and national championships events during the Olympic Skateboarding qualifying process that began in 2019. The national team will receive resources and sup- port from the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC) and USA Skateboarding on their journey to qualify for the Tokyo Games — the official Olympic Skateboarding team will be named in July following the conclusion of the qualification process.

“The national team announcements are one of our most fun events of the year,” said Josh Friedberg, CEO, USA Skateboarding. “The chance to gather as a team to celebrate all of our skaters’ accomplishments is especially meaningful this year as they gear up for the most important stretch of Olympic Qualifying ahead of skateboarding’s Olympic debut in Tokyo this July.”

Dedra DeLilli, group manager, sponsorship, integration, & auto shows, Toyota Motor North America said: “As a proud partner of USA Skateboarding, we excitedly congratulate all the athletes who were named to the 2021 USA Skateboarding National Team, including our own Team Toyota athlete, Jordyn Barratt.
