    Breakdancing moves closer to 2024 Paris Olympics

    "International Olympic Committee members formally endorsed requests from Paris officials in February and their own executive board in March to provisionally add breakdancing to the program, pending a final decision in December 2020.

    Paris wants to add four sports to its program, though the other three -- skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing -- will make Summer Games debuts in Tokyo next year."

    Breakdancing moves closer to 224 Paris debut

    OK, OK...I can understand skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing, but breakdancing? Is it the Olympics or "So You Think You Can Dance"?

    I sort of agree. But then again, is sword-fighting still a thing?
