The 2024 Paris Olympics just got way more RAD. The International Olympic Committee announced that it’s adding four new medal-eligible sports to the program. Next year we will see skateboarding, sport climbing, and surfing. Those sports will make their debut at the postponed Tokyo games. In the 2024 Paris games, they plan to bring in Breakdancing.
This info comes from the Associated Press, which says these four events have been chosen as part of the organization’s plan to “lure a younger audience” to the Olympics.
In other Olympic news for 2024, both boxing and weightlifting are apparently getting dramatically cut. No news as to why, but it is speculated the latter in danger of getting eliminated entirely over concerns with an ongoing doping problems.
