No skateboarding at Olympics

According to official Olympic sources, skateboarding is unlikely to be in the 2012 Olympics in London.

UCI sports director Olivier Queguiner, who met recently with IOC officials to discuss the situation, said that “no decision about skateboard”. Not even skateboarding, just skateboard.

High-level sources in Lausanne say the IOC will take no action on skateboarding until it hears from the UCI. One source indicates 2016 is a more likely start for skateboard. Skateboarders are also apparently divided on what event to stage in the Olympics, with the majority of top boarders believed to be in favor of a street-style event, not the half-pipe proposed by UCI.
