The IOC approved the inclusion of break dance in the Olympics 2024 program in Paris. This sport is “gender balanced”

And three other sports.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has tentatively approved the inclusion of break dance, skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing in the program of the Summer Olympic Games of 2024 to be held in Paris. This is reported on the organization’s website.

The organization’s president, Thomas Bach, said that these four sports “are fully in line with the 2020 Olympic agenda.” According to him, they are “more gender-balanced, more urban and allow you to keep in touch with the younger generation.”

A proposal to include break dance in the program was made in February by the Organizing Committee of the 2024 Summer Olympics. For the first time, break-dance entered the program of the third Summer Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires in 2018. The first in the history of the champion was the Russian Sergey Chernyshev (Bumblebee).
