The four sports proposed by Paris organizers — breakdancing, skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing — were provisionally approved for the 2024 Summer Games at the International Olympic Committee Session on Tuesday.

The four sports, featuring 12 individual events, are set to be contested in Paris in 2024 pending final confirmation of the competition program by the IOC Executive Board in 2020, with breakdancing set to make its Olympic debut, four years after the other three are contested for the first time in Tokyo.
