Reports have confirmed that organizers are proposing to have breakdancing to be included as a sport in the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
The International Olympic Committee must make a final decision by December 2020 in regards to approving breakdancing as a sport. The other sports that are being considered are climbing, surfing and skateboarding.
The IOC likes the proposal, admitting that the proposal is part of the objective of making the Olympics great again.
“We are pleased to see that Paris 2024’s proposal for new sports to the Olympic program is very much in line with the reforms of Olympic Agenda 2020, which is striving to make the Olympic program gender-balanced, more youth-focused and more urban,” an IOC statement read.
Meanwhile, surfing, sport climbing and skateboarding are all set to make their Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020 as additional events.
Squash, snooker and chess had also launched public bids for inclusion in Paris 2024 Olympic Games but will be disappointed by the announcement Thursday.
