Breaking, or more commonly known as break dancing, has officially been added as a sport to the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.

In addition to Breaking, surfing, skateboarding and climbing (rock climbing) have all been added to the list of sports for the 2024 Olympics in an announcement made by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Tuesday.

The decision to include Breaking builds upon the sports success in the 2018 Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires and the desire for the IOC to appeal to a younger demographic.

A controversial decision among the general public, the announcement on Tuesday was met with plenty of strong scrutiny across social media.
