Breakdance becomes Olympic Sport in 2024

At the 2024 Olympics in Paris, breakdancing will achieve what no other dance sport has done before it: for the first time, B-boys and B-girls will be breaking for Olympic medals.

I've always wanted to be an Olympian. I'm pretty good at Texas Hold Em. Also, they should look into bass fishing as well. I'm thinking, based on the goofy fools running the show, that I might have a chance.

Takes a lot of athleticism to sit at a poker table or bounce around in a boat for hours. Easily as much as curling.

I am dying to see Olympic jousting, but the just won't approve it.

I mean, who wouldn't want to see jousting in the Olympics? I would bet the Chinese would be all over it, with a camp dedicated just for training Chinese kaniggits.

Olympic pickleball should be added. If you are really good at it, be it singles or doubles, etc., you could go pro. They already have pro pickleball teams so it's natural to be an Olympic or amateur sport. Although jousting is must see tv.
