Breakdancing Will Be an Olympic Sport in 2024

Who’s ready to kick off this new year with some good news? Because we definitely all need it…

I know I do! So let’s get down to business!

As a child of the 1980s, I’m here to tell you that breakdancing was HOT HOT HOT when I was a kid, mostly thanks to a little film you might have heard of called Breakin’ (and the sequel Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo).

Well, now it looks like the sport of breakdancing will finally be getting its due, because it’s going to be an Olympic sport!

Awesome, right?

Yes, it was recently announced that breakdancing will be one of four new sports at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, France. The sport debuted at the 2018 Summer Youth Games and the “high entertainment value” of the activity was cited as the main reason for its inclusion in the big show.

It makes sense when you think about it. The athleticism and showmanship of breakdancing can be compared to other Olympic events like ice skating or the gymnastics floor routines. It’s all about style, ya know?

A British breaker named Karam Singh said that it’s “going to be great for breaking as it gives us more recognition as a sport. And for the Olympics, it will attract young people who may not follow some of the traditional sports.”

I personally can’t wait to see how this plays out during the 2024 Olympic Games. And I think it’s about time I revisit those classic Breakin’ films for a little refresher…

Pretty cool, huh?

And now we want to hear from you!

In the comments, tell us what other sports and activities you’d like to see included in the Olympics. Thanks in advance!

Check it out!

The youngster is a basketball prodigy and she now has a large following on Instagram with more than 65,000 followers!

You can tune in to her page to see Ramirez do all kinds of wizardry on the basketball court!

It seems like she can do it all, from dribbling to shooting to some tricks that you’ll see in a video at the end of this article.

Her dad Orlando says,

“It became apparent that Karolina was a talented player at 6 years old after playing and practicing basketball since she was 4.

She performs the trick shots by practicing for hours and challenging herself.”

This kid is the REAL deal. Check out these moves!

Her father added,

“It helps her get closer to achieving her goals.

Basketball is simply a platform that will open many paths in her life.”
