Breakdancing is among four new sports being proposed for inclusion at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Surfing, climbing and skateboarding are the other disciplines put forward by the Paris organising committee, which is looking to create interest in the Games among the younger populations.

Sports to lose out on being proposed were squash, which mounted a campaign to be included at the Paris Games, as well as billiard sports and chess.

The four selected sports do have some Olympic pedigree. Breakdancing (or breaking), skateboarding and sport climbing all appeared as medal events at the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires in 2018, while skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing will make their debuts on the Olympic programme in Tokyo in 2020.

The sports proposed by Paris 2024 will be reviewed by the Olympic Programme Commission.

A recommendation by the Commission will then be presented to the IOC Executive Board in March. If accepted, it will then be presented to the IOC Session.

After the Session, and following any necessary observation at the Tokyo 2020 Games, the final event programme and athlete quotas for the new sports will then be finalised.
