Tokyo Olympics: Men's Skateboard

olympics

When's does the men's skateboard start?

The first-ever skateboarding event at the Olympics will begin on Sunday, July 25th.

The events will be organised into heats 1-4 and end with a final that day. There is also the men's park event in skateboarding, which is different from the street games.

Men's Skateboard Odds: Nyjah Huston (USA)

Nyjah Huston is a four-time World Street champion and has won the most Street golds (10) and Street medals (16) in X Games history, putting him in the category of the very best to ever do it. However, Huston lost out to Japanese skateboarder, Yuto Horigame, who beat him by a point at the 2021 World Street Championships in Rome, stopping him from winning his fourth consecutive street skateboarding title.

Huston competed at the X-games in 2006 at the age of 11 and was instantly regarded as a skateboarding prodigy. and the American is the favourite to win the gold medal in skateboarding and is looked at as one of Team USA’s major hopes to win a medal. With Huston already securing several major titles in the sport, he may be the first skateboarder in history to win a gold medal at the Olympics.

Ahead of the debuting sport at the Tokyo Olympics, Huston is priced at 5/4 to win a gold medal and 1/4 to win any one of the three medals.

NYJAH HUSTON ODDS AT THE OLYMPICS @ 5/4

Men's Skateboard Odds: Yuto Horigome (JPN)

Ranked as the number two in the world, Yuto Horigome, is another major contender who will be looking to win a gold medal for skateboarding and he is the closest rival to the great Huston.

The 22-year-old won three out of four Street League Skateboarding contests in 2018, defeating number one in the world, Huston, in the 2021 World Street Championships in Rome earlier in the year.

The Los Angeles-born skateboarder turned professional in 2019 and has won eight street gold medals in his career. Horigome is also a budding videographer and is signed to Nike SB as one of the faces of the company.

The Japan competitor has already defeated Huston this year, who looks to be his main competitor, and will look to repeat his victory at the Tokyo Olympics. Either way, it's set to be an almighty battle.

To win a gold medal is priced at 2/1, whilst Horigome is priced at 4/9 to win one of the three medals.

Men's Skateboard Odds: Sora Shirai (JPN)

Another Japanese skateboarder, Sora Shirai, is considered a major talent to be emerging from the country and could soon rival the big guns of the sport. Shirai started to make waves in 2019 by rising from the bottom of the Street League Skateboarding London Olympic qualifier and making it into the finals, finishing in seventh place.

At the Mountain Dew Tour Olympic qualifier in Long Beach, Shirai started in the qualifying rounds and made it to the finals where he finished second overall. He is extremely talented and has the quick-thinking and awareness needed to reach the top of the sport.

Shirai showed all of this in the final at Mountain Dew Tour, as he shocked judges and spectators by performing a 540 kickflip down the eight-star, earning himself a second-place finish.

Shirai is priced at 9/1 to win the gold and also 9/4 to win a medal.

Men's Skateboard Odds: Jagger Eaton (USA)

20-year-old Jagger Eaton is another American skateboarder competing at the Olympics and with a bright future ahead of him in the sport.

Eaton was formerly the youngest ever X Games competitor until his record was broken by Gui Khury. In 2014, Eaton also won the Tampa Am contest, which was his first major competition win, and continued this into 2017, as the then-teenager won the highly desired Phoenix Am title along with an X-Games gold medal.

In 2018 Eaton won Estonia’s Simple Session and an X Games silver as he looked to become professional. Eaton secured his professional status due to an impressive debut section for The Heart Supply in 2020. As a result, he was included in the USA Olympic team for Tokyo 2021, where he will look to cause an upset by making his presence counted for and winning a medal.

For Eaton to win a gold medal winner, he is 16/1) and sits at 11/4 to win a gold, silver or a bronze.
