This is not a joke. Breakdancing will become an Olympic Sport in the 2024 Games...
The International Olympic Committee says the Olympic competition will feature 16 b-boy and 16 b-girls from around the world competing in 1-on-1 battles.
The top finishers get real Olympic medals -- gold, silver and bronze.
The head of the World DanceSport Federation called the announcement "historic" ... "not only for b-boys and b-girls but for all dancers around the world."
WDSF president Shawn Tay added ... "It was a true team effort to get to this moment and we will redouble our efforts in the lead-up to the Olympic Games to make sure the breaking competition at Paris 2024 will be unforgettable."
Not everyone is happy about this...
Australian squash legend Michelle Martin says it's a "mockery" that breakdancing is an Olympic sport while squash is not.
“You just look at the whole thing and you just go ‘Where’s the Olympics going?’ I know some people say breakdancing’s a sport but ... I don’t understand,” Martin told the AAP.
“The Olympics was all about a score, or it was a running race. There was a definitive answer and results to sports. You bring in all these judging things and it just gets so corrupt and so out of control. I just don’t get it anymore.”
I mean come on, this is pretty dumb, no?
