Breakdancing Added As New Sport For 2024 Paris Olympics

Breakdancing has been confirmed as one of four additional sports approved for the 2024 Paris Olympics.


Skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing were also provisionally added to the 2024 program by the Organising Committee in June 2019.

Breakdancing is a type of hip hop dance that involves side steps, stunts, acrobatics and choreography to music. It will be called breaking when competitors take to the floor.

The decision was confirmed on Monday, December 7 by the International Olympic Committee, as it seeks to attract a younger audience to the competition.

The 2024 Summer Games will be hosted in Paris from July 26 to August 11.
