Which disciplines will be new at the Olympics in 2024?

One man’s meat is another man’s suffering …

There are a few new disciplines – including a completely new sport!

The disciplines of surfing, sport climbing and skateboarding will be back in 2024. The so-called “breaking” is completely new.

The dance sport celebrated its Olympic debut at the 2018 Summer Youth Games in Buenos Aires. Breaking was successfully tested at the 2023 finals. Now, breaking is set to be included in the Olympic program for the first time as a summer dance sport.

At the 2024 Olympic Games, the breakdance competition will be split into two events, one for men and one for women. A jury will determine the winner in individual battles.

These disciplines are new:

  • Breaking
  • Kayak Cross for men and women
  • Kitesurfing for men and women
  • Speed ​​competition for men and women in sport climbing
  • New mixed events in shooting

More mixed competitions, but fewer decisions! Overall, the number of decisions has been reduced to 329. That’s a full ten fewer than we had at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
