Interestingly, break dancing was found in 1970’s America, it then gained immense popularity in the Paris pop culture and hence the decision came in action. The final judgement by the International Olympic Committee is yet to be made, though.


Reportedly, breakdancing was a part of Youth Olympics, 2018 and Japan’s Ramu Kawai won gold in the boys’ category whereas Russia’s Sergei Chernyshev won the same honour in the girls’ category. If the sport gets a place in 2024 Paris Olympics, then its events will likely showcase face-offs between individuals or teams. The Washington Post recently interviewed famous French break dancer Mounir Biba and asked him to comment on the news, Mounir looked happy and he said: “There’s simply no doubt about the athletic aspects of the discipline. I defy Cristiano Ronaldo to do just one of my movements.”


Well, the inception of new sports in Olympics is definitely a news to cherish and we just hope that International Committee gives this suggestion a green signal.
