Breaking with tradition: will breakdancing become an Olympic sport?
In a break with tradition, organisers of the Paris Olympics want to include Breakdancing as a sport in
the 2024 programme.
The organising committee says Breakdancing – along with the new sports of surfing, skateboarding and
climbing which debut in 2020 in Tokyo – will help take the Games out of stadiums and onto the streets.
The organisers say they want to deliver a Games that are "in keeping with the times and inspire new
audiences and attract young people ... and which can be played anywhere and anytime in urban and other
The IOC needs to approve the French proposals before they can be formally added to the Paris Games
sports programme.

Yuzuru Hanyu wants to skate in Grand Prix Final
despite ankle injuries
Walking on crutches at the Rostelcom Cup of Russia awards ceremony on Sunday,
two-time Olympic men’s champion Yuzuru Hanyu has indicated he intends to
skate at the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final starting from Dec. 6.
One day after winning his second championship of this year’s Grand Prix series, Hanyu
appeared at the ceremony dressed in his free skate costume but moving on crutches,
and was showered with applause.
The injuries, suffered in a practice fall prior to Saturday’s free skate, will require three
weeks of rest. However, Japan Skating Association head of development Yoshiko
Kobayashi said Hanyu had told her he would “dedicate all his energy toward
regaining his fitness ahead of the final.”
According to Kobyashi, Hanyu was diagnosed with apparent damage to two different
ligaments, a tendon and his fibula, and the ankle swelled up overnight.
“The affected areas are being iced repeatedly and he is keeping his leg elevated,”
she added.
Considering his past, it would be hard to rule Hanyu out of the Grand Prix Final,
which he has won four times.
In 2014, he was injured in a crash at the Cup of China in early November, but bounced
back one month later to win the Grand Prix Final. His second Olympic championship
this past February came after suffering bone and tendon injuries last November.
