Darren Pearcy is the Team Manager at Skateboard GB as the sport makes its Olympic debut. And this is a great insight into the culture of a very non-traditional sport.

Darren talks about what he does to help his team of two teenage girls in Tokyo making sure they are well looked after.

Darren talks about this major new platform for skateboarding and his hopes that kids who don't like traditional sports will be engaged and take up the sport. He talks about its unique culture - which is about a lifestyle as much as a sport. Friends, fashion, art, music.

Thanks for listening!
