OLYMPIC POETRY-SKATEBOARDING DOUBTFUL

ABC News possibly misquotes Australian skateboarder Tas Pappas on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics:

“I’m wondering how it’s going to work as far as the drug testing is concerned, because some guys skate really well on weed and if they have to stop smoking for one competition (the Olympics) it might really affect their performance.

“As far as the skate community is concerned, for a lot of people it will seem cheesy. This country verses that country is not the unified skate culture.

“When you meet a bunch of skaters you don’t feel like it’s us verses them, it’s just a bunch of guys getting together and want to have a skate.”

Very disappointing: watching ripped skaters spouting poetry would undoubtedly be the 2020 Olympic highlight.
