Get to Know Jake Ilardi Prior to the Tokyo Olympics
Skateboarders aren’t always fans of rules. However, you can’t be a sport without rules, and to some skating is very much a sport. Otherwise, how could it be in the Olympics. At the forefront of the sports side of skateboarding is World Skate. You may not have heard of them, but they are the governing body for skateboarding sporting events, and “roller sports” in general.
They are even recognized by the IOC. World Skate are also purveyors of video content, evidently. Recently they profiled Florida’s own Jake Ilardi, who will be representing the United States in Tokyo. He’s working on his tricks and expanding his repertoire for the event, and you can hear all about it in the video above.
