Skateboarding will become an Olympic sport for the first time in Tokyo next summer. Nottingham is one of the sport’s original homes in the UK, with a vibrant community and culture going back more than fifty years, including internationally known professionals such as Carl Shipman in the 1990s and now Alex Hallford, who is one of just 5 skaters nationwide to be supported to compete in global Olympic qualification events in the run-up to Tokyo.
