Three new sports have been added to the schedule for the next big youth sporting showpiece #event, the Youth Olympic Games, from October 1-12, 2018.
Karate and #sport climbing had already been given the nod for the main Tokyo Games in 2020 with dance #sport an exciting youth inclusion.
In an effort to keep up with the times, all three sports have a young, loyal following around the world and cool, urban edge.
Men’s, women’s and mixed team breakdancing battles will form the basis for dance #sport, similar to Red Bull BC One, with kumite the foundation discipline for karate as athletes compete in three events per gender.
Bouldering, lead and speed are the three disciplines chosen for #sport climbing in a combined #event for men and women.
Cheerleading and Muay Thai have also been recognised as potential sports for inclusion in future Youth Games beyond #buenosaires.
Finally the world governing body has also ensured that the Argentine edition will be the first for complete gender equality.
