Breakdancing set for Olympics debut in Paris 2024
Breakdancing will be an Olympic sport at Paris 2024. Skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing have also been invited to return to Paris. Breakdancing, known as breaking, appeared at the 2018 Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, as head-to-head “battles”. Russia’s Sergei Chernyshev, competing under the nickname Bumblebee, won the first breakdancing gold medal for boys, while Japan’s Ramu Kawai won the girls’ title.
