The 2024 Olympics could introduce a “new” sport to the world.
In order to inject some youth into the Olympic games, four sports have been proposed be showcased for the Paris games. Surfing, climbing, skateboarding, and breakdancing may take center stage for the event. Yes… breakdancing!
The IOC seems to be thrilled with the four choices and has until next December to decide whether to include the sports. Obviously, some people will criticize breakdancing as a sport, but if you’ve tried it, you know the skill it involves.
It’s already included in the Youth Olympic Games, so we’ll see if it carries over. The other three spots proposed will make their debut in the Tokyo 2020 games.
Three “sports” rejected by the IOC yesterday were squash, snooker, and chess.
