Breakdancing tipped for inclusion at Paris 2024 Olympics

Paris (AFP)

Breakdancing is one of four additional sports expected to be included at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris along with surfing, sport climbing and skateboarding, sources indicated Wednesday.

The list of additions is due to be revealed by the local organising committee (OCOG) on Thursday and must be signed off on by the International Olympic Committee.
 
Their inclusion would come on top of the 28 sports already on the programme, although the Paris 2024 committee did not confirm the reports to AFP.

Breakdancing still around?  I wish they have football (our version not the fake version) as an Olympic sport.

This might have been relevant in 1988.

Eagerly awaiting to hear that a disco competition has been added...

Disco would be a much better addition.

Gee whiz, and I'm still throbbing with excitement about the synchronized swimming from the last Olympics. It was so exciting it was.....uh, hold on....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Oh sorry dozed off just thinking about it.   :yawn2:
What they should be introducing is parkour. Now that's an exciting sport.

Can't wait to see all those Ghetto Blasters pumping out the beat.

Can twerking be far off? How about pole dancing?

Good to see that the OC is Johnny on the spot...I’m mean break dancing was big, in what, about 1986?

ITs hard for me to believe there are enough people around to even petition for this “sport” to be included

It is pretty obvious to me that this is a blatant case of pandering to a specific demographic to increase declining ratings and revenue.
