Is Breakdancing Becoming An Olympic Sport?

 

Breakdancing to become an olympic sport

There is still a little vetting to do, however the The International Olympic Committee has voted in favor of bringing breakdancing to the 2024 Olympics in Paris. The Committee gave the green light this week with the Paris Olympics 2024 president Tony Estanguet saying, “Our aim from the outset has been to highlight what has been the strength of the Games for 32 Olympiads now — the diversity of the sports and the excitement that comes with performance — while also taking the opportunity afforded by the IOC to enhance the program and offer a new dimension.”

Breaking made it’s  medal debut last October at the Buenos Aires Youth Summer Games. It will join competitive climbing/bouldering, skateboarding and surfing as new Olympic sports.
