Alas, no one will have to skip school to watch this year. No matter how you choose to interact (ESPN, ABC, YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, telegram, etc) the X Games, in particular the athletes, will be waiting for you and your digital love. Tune in January 29–31 to see the action come to life in the comfort of your home.
While life has changed for all of us this year, the X Games embodies much of our collective experience: pushing ourselves, lifting each other up, overcoming our struggles and celebrating our victories, no matter how small, or big they might be. When speaking about his gold medal run at the 2019 games, Ferreira notes, “You didn’t know if you could do something and then you just do it.”
That pretty much sums up what we have all been going through over the past year. With that in mind, it’s time to push off, keep that core tight and launch into that great unknown. Let the games begin!
