Grab your cardboard and boombox, breakdancing is now an Olympic sport
· · Dec 7, 2020 ·

Some boomer on the International Olympic Committee decided that the best way to get "youths" to watch the Olympics was to include sports that were popular in 1980s teen culture.

So now it's official, the 2024 Paris Games will feature break dancing.

The new event will be joined by three other sports that will be making their Olympic debut in the delayed 2021 Tokyo Games. These include surfing, skateboarding and sport climbing.

I guess that's pretty cool, as long as they don't do away with competitive race walking.
