Breakdancing Proposed As 2024 Paris Olympics Sport

The BBC reports:

Breakdancing has been proposed for inclusion in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, organisers have announced. It is among four sports that organisers will propose to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), as well as surfing, climbing and skateboarding, which will all debut at Tokyo 2020.

Squash campaigned unsuccessfully for inclusion in the Paris Games, as did billiard sports and chess. The IOC will consider the proposal and must reach a decision by December 2020.

Tony Estanguet, a three-time canoeing Olympic champion and head of the Paris 2024 organising committee, said the inclusion of the new sports would make the Olympics “more urban” and “more artistic”.
