Breaking: The latest sport to feature in an Olympic Games

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) said on Monday, breakdancing will be making its Olympics Debut at Paris 2024.

“Today is a historic occasion, not only for b-boys and b-girls but for all dancers around the world,” said Shawn Tay, president of the World DanceSport Federation (WDSF).

He added that, “The WDSF could not be prouder to have breaking included at Paris 2024, and we thank everyone who helped make it possible: the executive board of the IOC, the Paris 2024 organizers, the WDSF staff and, most importantly, the breaking community itself.
It will be the first DanceSport event to appear at an Olympic Games.”

In 2018, It has been staged at the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires. According to the WDSF, there were three medals events that drew crowds of more than 30,000 people each day.

A total of 32 breakdancers will compete in one vs one battles, i.e 16 b-boys and 16 b-girls. It is expected that the sport’s inclusion will attract a large number of young audience to the Olympics.

IOC executive board made it clear that skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing also will debut at Paris due to the postponement of Tokyo 2020 Games.

IOC president Thomas Bach told the reporters that he is “very, very confident” that spectators will be able to attend. Tokyo 2020 is scheduled to begin on July 23, 2021.
