Breakdancing has now been added to the list of official Olympic sports for the 2024 Olympics games. However, Twitter has given mixed reactions for the same.
Breakdancing has now become an official Olympic sport. To attract young viewers across the world, the International Olympics’ Committee has added break dancing to the list of medal events in the 2024 Olympics games. Along with breakdance, other games to make their debut are skateboarding, surfing, and sport climbing. While this news has been welcomed by breakdance enthusiasts, some people believe it’s not a good decision.
After the announcement on Monday, 7th December, Twitter saw some mixed reactions. Here are some of them:
Breakdance is in the Olympics.
I'm actually hyped https://t.co/ByxMkEz6TG

If gymnastics is an Olympic sport, then Breakdance is an Olympic sport too.

The people who organise The Olympics are just losing their mind now. Skateboarding and Surfing dope. Breakdancing and Rock Climbing? Come on breakdancing isn’t a sport, it’s more of a hobby pic.twitter.com/GImjPBZreD

Breakdancing is now an Olympic sport.
Do people still breakdance?
I'm shocked. It should be a part of the gymnastic category if anything.

Folks complaining about Break Dancing in the Olympics are forgetting about curling and horse dancing. I think this is awesome. https://t.co/zliNQvAiFJ

pleased that breakdance is part of the 2024 olympics but i feel that literally all dance should be as well (i mean, we have the kind with ice skates) and come to think of it all organised sports

I’m sorry what!!! There is no other dancing in the Olympics, why this style? What about Ballet, tap, contemporary, hip hop, ballroom, jazz – why such a niche dance style as breakdancing! 🤦🏼♀️
