Breakdance has been added as part of the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
This decision was confirmed by the International Olympic Committee on Monday as it aims to attract young spectators to the historic Games.
Other newly added sports include skateboarding, sports climbing and surfing. All of these will debut at the late Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2021.
Breakdance is called breakdance when the competitor reaches the floor in Paris.
The idea was proposed two years ago after a successful test at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In the youth game, the contestants faced each other in a one-on-one dance-off.
Russia’s Sergei “Bumblebee” Chernishev won the gold medal at the men’s tournament, and Japan’s Lamb “Lamb” Kawai won the podium on the women’s ladder.
In 2024, a dance-off will take place at the downtown Paris venue, with sports climbing and 3v3 basketball.
