The Tokyo Games will welcome skateboarding, surfing, sport climbing and basketball 3x3 into the Olympic program this summer, and with them a whole culture of urban and action sports. This week's episode of The Podium explores these new-school events and how their development outside of the Games could actually make them the perfect embodiments of old-school Olympic values. 

Let Todd Richards take you through the evolution of boardsports with input from riders like Nyjah Huston, Kolohe Andino and Heimana Reynolds; feel the gritty excitement of 3x3 with Kareem Maddox and Robbie Hummel; and elevate your climbing knowledge through Colin Duffy and Brooke Raboutou's vertical prowess.
