With breakdancing set to make its debut at the 2024 Olympics in Paris, local leaders in the scene are expressing mixed feelings.
(The same could be said of two other sports set to make their Olympic debut: skateboarding and surfing.)
People thought break dance was just a fad and here it is in the Olympics now.”“I feel really good and really excited.
I think just because breaking’s in the Olympics, it will make more people be interested in actually doing it.
Breaking will be added to the 2024 slate of events following a successful trial run at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
