Street skateboarders looking to make it to the next Olympic Games are hitting up WST Lausanne Street 2023 from 9-16 September for the next stop on the qualification road to Paris 2024.

The event, streaming live on YouTube, Olympics.com and the official Olympics app, will see Olympic stars including Horigome Yuto, Rayssa Leal and Nyjah Huston, meet in the Beaulieu District to battle it out for the number one prize. And with the Games approaching, the competition for ranking points – also on offer based on finishing positions – is heating up.

Just like with the previous skateboarding Olympic qualifying events, the competition will begin with a men’s and women’s open qualifier with the top 27 advancing to the quarter-finals. There, the top five skaters, who are pre-seeded owing to their Olympic World Skate Ranking, will join the contest.

The field will then be cut down in a semi-final leaving just eight skaters for the men’s and women’s finals on Saturday 16 September.

The open qualifiers and quarter-finals will use the best score of two 45-second runs while the semi-final and final will use the Olympic street format – 2/5/3.
