Summer Olympics Take 2: Tokyo 2021. The year isn’t the only thing different about this summer Olympics as new sports take the main stage this summer. Surfing, Skateboarding, Karate, and Sports Climbing are certainly the most talked about new events. Softball and Baseball are also made a comeback after being gone since 2008. Whether you are rooting for the United States or another country the competitors for medals in Skateboarding, Sports Climbing and Baseball should be exciting! Never thought Surfing was a “real” sport. Well, you know you’ve made it when the International Olympic Committee votes you in as an official event. Looking forward to seeing more alternative sports like Parkour make the official Olympic event list!
