Breakdancing has just been confirmed as a new sport starting at the Paris 2024 Olympics in France. Skateboarding, sport climbing, and surfing will debut at the delayed games in Tokyo next year.
The International Olympic Committee confirmed the decision on Monday and the sport will be called Breaking instead of Breakdancing when competitors take to the stage during the Paris 2024 Olympics.
The decision to introduce this new sport was because the IOC is trying to attract a younger audience and the idea was proposed two years ago after trials at the 2018 Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, Argentina, proved a success.
The dance-offs will take place at a downtown venue in Paris 2024 Olympics together with 3v3 Basketball as well as sport climbing.
