New sports in Olympic Games Paris 2024

The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 saw a range of new sports added to the roster, including baseball and softball, karate, sport climbing, surfing and skateboarding. The new sport for 2024 is even more exciting. Breaking (aka breakdancing) is set to make its debut at the Olympic Games Paris 2024.

Like gymnastics events, judges will determine the winners based on technical skills, creativity, style, speed, strength, rhythm and agility.

Parisian landmarks will host Olympic Games sporting events

If your itinerary for the Olympic Games is too jam-packed to allow sightseeing, never fear – events will be hosted at some of the most iconic landmarks in Paris. Think beach volleyball with a view of the Eiffel Tower, skateboarding at the Place de la Concorde and equestrian sports at the Château de Versailles. The goal is to take sport out of traditional spaces, and put competitions at the heart of the city, in front of the most famous Parisian landmarks.

These events will be popular, but with an Official Hospitality or Travel Package you’re guaranteed premium seating, and will also be able to relax in style at a number of exclusive private and shared lounges. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Other Olympic Games Paris 2024 firsts

It won’t just be the athletes breaking records at the Olympic Games Paris 2024. This will be the first time in history where an Olympic Games will achieve a 50-50 split between male and female athletes, compared with Rio 2016 (47.5 per cent female) and Tokyo 2020 (48.8 per cent female). This year will also mark the first time (since it was added in 1984) that the women’s marathon will close the athletics program, instead of the men’s.
