Breakdancing has become one of the four programs, with the suggestion to join in the Olympic programme along with surfing, climbing, and skateboarding.

As per the latest sports reports, breakdancing should be involved as a new sport in the Olympic program as proposed by the Olympic organizers of Paris 2024.

Nevertheless, breakdancing should now wait for final approval from the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which is to be held until December 2020 for the final call.

Talking to one of the sources, an IOC spokesperson said that the committee appreciated with the proposal as it was in line with its aim of rejuvenating the Olympics.

An IOC statement read as follows, “We are pleased to see that Paris 2024’s proposal for new sports to the Olympic programme is very much in line with the reforms of Olympic Agenda 2020, which is striving to make the Olympic programme gender-balanced, more youth-focused and more urban.”

Breakdancing made its debut in the 2018 Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but has yet to be included in the full senior programme.

Young participants competed under nicknames or informal titles, in which Russia’s B-Boy Bumblebee won men’s gold medal.
