Breakdancing steps into 2024 Olympics: officially

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced that breakdancing, also known as breaking, will officially be included in the 2024 Summer Games in Paris. Surfing, skateboarding and sport (rock) climbing have also been ratified for inclusion. Breakdancing is one of four sports that organisers are to propose to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), as well as surfing, climbing and skateboarding, which will all debut at Tokyo 2020.

Tony Estanguet, three-time canoeing Olympic champion and head of the Paris 2024 organising committee, said about the inclusion of the new sports would make the Olympics “more urban” and “more artistic”.
