Breakdancing is now a proposed summer sport for 2024 Paris Olympic Games
The 2024 Summer Olympic Games are taking place in Paris, France and breakdancing is officially on the ballot. The proposal now goes to the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Other events in consideration include surfing, climbing, and skateboarding, which are already slated to make their Olympics debut the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
Tony Estanguet, head of the Paris organizing committee, says the sport would bring a “more urban” and “more artistic” feel to the Olympic Games.
Breakdancing was a part of the program at the 2018 Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The IOC will now view the proposal to bring it to the adult Olympics, rendering a final decision by December 2020. In an event where sports like equestrian and synchronized swimming have their place, then breakdancing certainly isn’t a far off cry.
