A Closer Look | WST Tokyo Street World Championship 2023

Written by Niall Neeson

December 2023’s WST Tokyo Street World Championship at the Ariake Colosseum saw host nation Japan crowning new World Champions in both men’s and women’s divisions. The week-long event saw more than 200 entrants from 50 nations compete for the title of World Champion as well as Official World Skate Ranking points which contribute towards qualification for the Olympic grand finale in Paris this coming summer.

See how a modern classic unfolded as Alan Hannon takes us up close and personal with the people who both created and witnessed genuine skateboarding magic in our 2023-wrapping blowout.
