World DanceSport Federation vice-president for sports Nenad Jeftic has predicted that breaking will revolutionise the Olympic Games when it makes its debut at Paris 2024.

The sport has been included on the programme in the French capital following a successful entry at the Summer Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires in 2018.

"After a brilliant debut at the Youth Olympic Games, breaking is on the way to the Olympics," said Jeftic at the Urban Sports Summit here

"We are starting with qualifiers and continuing with the Olympic Qualifying Series next year.

"The spotlight of Paris will show the full potential of the sport, and it will be the first time that the world can see the excitement of breaking on the biggest stage.

"Our sport has been around for 65 years so people are aware of it, but they are just not used to seeing dancesport competitively.

"Breaking will open the door for new directions in the Olympics, allow it to develop and attract a new audience, and also present a new perspective on sport which is greatly needed to keep the Games relevant."
