Breakdancing Comes Closer to Becoming an Official Olympic Sport

On Tuesday, breakdancing came a step closer to becoming an official Olympic sport, as the International Olympic Committee gave the event's organizers permission to seek out a street venue for the 2024 Paris Games. "It's important for us in our concept to put sports out of the stadiums and in the heart of the city," Paris 2024 president Tony Estanguet told the AP. Skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing will all make their debut at the Summer Games in Tokyo in 2020, while "breaking" made its debut as a medal event last October at the Buenos Aires Youth Summer Games. That being said, the AP adds that these four new sports "must still prove themselves to Olympic observers, and could yet be removed from the Paris program ahead of final approval by the IOC board."
