    I should make clear that these new sports aren't going to be at the upcoming 2021 Olympics. These are slated to begin at the 2024 Summer Olympics. The International Olympic Committee not only added breakdancing and skateboarding to the list, but they also added skateboarding, surfing, karate and climbing as well. I think all of these new sports are amazing additions to the Olympics. I'll definitely be watching all of these new ones, maybe even more than all the traditional sports. I'm excited to see what they have in store for karate and skateboarding.

    If curling (which for some crazy reason is wildly popular) is an Olympic sport then breakdancing certainly should qualify!

    I was surprised to learn skateboarding wasn't already an Olympic event. Shows what I know.

    So what will the climbing look like? Will climbers climb natural rock formations or will they be competing using a climbing wall?

    Who knows. I'm excited for the climbing and all the new sports but I'm definitely mostly looking forward to how they skateboarding and the breakdancing will be held and how they're judged.

    Surfing, nice. Never thought of that one but that's cool. Logistic issues though, guess they will either have to pick host cities that have good surf spots or spend tons on artificial wave pool setups?
