Breakdancing first appeared in Buenos Aires at the Youth Olympic Sports, in the form of battles or duels, and they were judged by judges and they fall under the backings of the World Dance Sport Federations (WDSF). The OCOG and IOC said the number of athletes participating will be capped at 10,500, a discount from the Tokyo maximum, for the 2024 Olympic Games, which it limits the hopes of team sports. The Local organizers suggested the need for the building of new permanent venues which would most likely count against sports that are pushing to be included.
