Breakdancing to Premier at Paris Olympics in 2024
This is not a new story. It first broke in December of 2020.
I suspect it was to get us primed for what undoubtedly would become lots and lots of questions. But then life happened. 2020 was prime pandemic season and I suppose folx forgot that
AS AN OLYMPIC SPORT
of all places.
This is NOT Paris slander. (Please let the former Miss New York know)

I just have questions.
How does One Qualify for an Olympics Level Breakdancing Team? Is it like gymnastics?
Also, Who Are the Judges Who Shalt be Judging the Breakdancing Competitions?
Do we know them? Are they from New York? Are they breakdancing pioneers? Do they have credentials? Can we see them?
Also, who will be the Breakdancing commentators?
You know, the people on the live mics, breaking down each move for the folx watching at home. I feel like Break Dance commentation requires a specific skill set.
And Finally, what is the determining factor for Gold, Silver, Bronze and Honorable Mentions?
Is there a do or die move that has to happen that shores the gold?
Breakdancing as a sport in the Paris Olympics is exciting on face, but until my questions are answered, I'll keep one brow up until next summer in Paris.
FYI: The frontrunner to win gold for the US team in Breakdancing is a woman from New York. Stay tuned...
