Skate to victory

There will be a new face at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games next summer, a much more youthful one at that with the 11-year-old skateboarder, Sky Brown making her Olympic debut. Skateboarding will be added to the other 33 sports at Tokyo with events for both men and women in its two disciplines, street and park. The new event will have an urban feel with skaters demonstrating a range of skills and tricks on their skateboards. 

The main difference skateboarding will bring to the Olympics is its young competitors. The average age of skateboarders is between 13 and 14 with 60% being under 15 which means the age of the experts is a lot younger than most sports. For Great Britain, Sky Brown who is 11 years old, is set to become our youngest Olympian, competing against the top 12 women (and girls) in the world at the games.    

With such mini superstar athletes competing for the top prize, for schools it’s not just a question of making an athlete but more about finding a potential Olympian. At Marshall Minibus we specialise in providing expert minibus leasing services for schools and because of this we can offer a wide variety of minibus packages to suit your school’s specific needs.

When it comes to using your minibus it’s not just the children you’re transporting but all their equipment as well. When it comes to your skateboarders you have to worry about the boards and all the safety gear. This means you need the right amount of space for you. Our minibuses come in a variety of sizes and configurations allowing you to get the right balance between seats and storage.

So, why not lease a minibus and get it down the half-pipe performing tricks with the kids? To find out how we can assist with all of your school minibus leasing requirements, please visit our dedicated ‘Your Minibus’ section on our website or call us directly on 01480 220444.
