2024 Olympics Add Breaking, Sport Climbing, Skateboarding & Surfing

Paris 2024 has provisionally included the following sports categories to the program for the Olympic Games:

  • Breaking
  • Skateboarding
  • Sport climbing
  • Surfing

The decision was made this week by the 134th Session of the International Olympic Committee.

“The four sports that Paris has proposed are all totally in line with Olympic Agenda 2020 because they contribute to making the programme more gender balanced and more urban, and offer the opportunity to connect with the younger generation,” said IOC President Thomas Bach. “The proposed sports are in line with these principles and enhance Paris 2024’s overall dynamic Games concept, which focuses on inclusivity, inspiring a new audience and hosting socially responsible Games.”

“I am delighted with the IOC Session’s vote in favour of our proposal to include breaking, sport climbing, skateboarding and surfing on the Paris 2024 Olympic Games programme,” said Paris 2024 President Tony Estanguet. “Our aim from the outset has been to highlight what has been the strength of the Games for 32 Olympiads now – the diversity of the sports and the excitement that comes with performance – while also taking the opportunity afforded by the IOC to enhance the programme and offer a new dimension.”
