The organizers for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games will propose breakdancing as a new sport to the International Olympic Comitee (IOC), reports BBC News.

Breakdancing was included in the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires in 2018, with Russian breakdancer ‘Bumblebee’, AKA Sergei Chernyshev, and Japan’s Ramu Kawai taking home the gold medal in the boys and girls categories respectively.

It’s one of four sports including surfing, climbing and skateboarding that Paris organisers will propose to the IOC, who must reach a decision by December 2020.
