SKATEBOARDING is piquing the interest of sports fans ahead of its Olympic debute in 2021, and fans get a taste of elite competition this weekend at Beenleigh and Flagstone.

Australia’s professional rivals go head-to-head at Beenleigh’s $3.1 million Doug Larsen Park on Saturday, before moving to Flagstone Skate Park on Sunday.

The new competition has been developed by the Australian Skateboarding Community Initiative.

At next year’s Tokyo Olympic Games, the sport will be divided into two disciplines – park and street.
The park event will be at Doug Larsen Park, and the street event at Flagstone.
Both events start at 1pm.
Logan City Councillor Karen Murphy said Logan was cementing its place in the Australian skateboarding community.
“The inaugural Logan Showdown will bring together some of our country’s top skateboarders and I am thrilled we will be able to see them in action on our Logan skate parks,” she said.
“The recent upgrade of Beenleigh’s Doug Larsen Park in particular, has undoubtedly put Logan on the map for Australian skateboarders.
“Doug Larsen Park is a premier skateboarding facility, and I look forward to seeing some potential future Olympians honing their skills there.”
