LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) -- Breakdancing has moved a step closer to the 2024 Olympics, and now organizers can look to book a street venue in Paris.
IOC members have formally endorsed requests from Paris in February and their 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 Olympic debuts in Tokyo next year.
Breakdancing will have 16 competitors in each of the men's and women's events.
