Skateboarding, sport climbing, surfing, and breakdancing are now Olympic Sports!

Street dance battles have officially been added to the program for the 2024 Paris Games, and skateboarding, sport climbing, and surfing will make their Olympic debuts at the Tokyo Games kicking off July 23, 2021.

Breakdancing will be called breaking and, on top of diversifying the events, the IOC says it is working towards overall equal participation by men and women.
