Tim McFerran is a skate enthusiast who wants to get the action sport to compete at the Olympic level.
Founder of the World Skateboarding Grand Prix, McFerran believes in developing youth across the world through skateboarding.
He explains that skateboarding has grown in South Africa through youth development programmes to put local skateboarders on the map.
McFerran says that, although skateboarding still requires more formal organising, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is interested in advancing the young sport.
