Olympic history maker - Bombette Martin, Team GB Skateboarding

Published on: 1st July, 2021

Bombette Martin is a history maker. She's part of the first ever Team GB Skateboarding squad heading to the Olympics.

Bombette is 15, was born and lives in New York, but qualifies for GB because her dad is from Birmingham, UK.

She talks with great enthusiasm about becoming an Olympian, which she says is very overwhelming.

Bombette took up skateboarding around 5 years ago and made rapid progression into the top 20. It's sure to be a big hit this summer and best of luck to the Team and thanks for chatting Bombette.

Destination Tokyo
Olympic and Paralympic stories in the run up to the Tokyo Games.
I’ve covered 5 Olympic and 5 Paralympic Games at home and abroad. Tokyo 2020 was to have been numbers 6. So how are the athletes preparing during Covid times. And what are they learning in the run up to the Games. The Podcast lasts around 10 mins and comes out daily, Monday to Friday. I’m also using it to raise money for Maggie’s Cancer Centres to thank them for the help they’ve given my wife and family during her bowel cancer journey.
