The International Olympic Committee (IOC) voted in Lausanne to include breakdance, skateboarding, sports climbing and surfing at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
Breakdance will debut in Paris under the Olympic rings, plus three sectors will be on the agenda for next year's Tokyo Olympics.
The IOC's decision on Tuesday must be officially confirmed by the IOC executive on its committee in December 2020.
"The four sports Paris has designed are in line with the 2020 Olympic agenda because they contribute to making the program more balanced, more urban and offering the opportunity to connect with the younger generation." said the president of IOC Thomas Bach by AFP.
