You must have seen cheerleaders dancing at every boundary or fall of wicket just outside boundary grills of a cricket match. While cricket as a sport has valiantly and unsuccessfully tried to become a part of the holy grail of sport – the Olympics – a form of dance has been included to it and will make its debut in 2024 Paris Games – Break Dance.
Break dancing will be called ‘Breaking’ at the event, which it was called in the 1970s in the United States by hip-hop artists. It has also been anointed that name because it is breaking hopes and chances of ‘actual’ sports such as kabaddi, squash and several others to become a part of the sporting event.
Hearing the news, Dabbu uncle has written a letter to the Olympics, asking them to hand over the first medal to him undisputedly, on the pretext of leaving the likes of Issei and others far behind in making the genre globally hit. Some researchers have also suggested that it is only after the dance of Dabbu uncle that the IOC seriously considered including Break Dance as an Olympic sport.
The World Kabaddi Federation is considering teaching all U-20 Kabaddi players a move or two of Break Dance that they will have to perform every time they get a point after a raid or tackle, furthering impressing upon the organizers of the Olympics. After reading reports on these, Anup Kumar is also considering coming out of retirement.

Memers and Instagram influencers are also gearing up for Olympics 2028, and YouTubers that have subscribers more than the Olympic channel on YT are planning to sue the global organizing body.

Remo D’Souza has written a letter of recommendation for Anu Malik and Neha Kakkar to be the judges for qualification rounds. The IOC has strictly announced a single judge for the grand finale – Om Prakash Mishra, of the ‘Bol Na Aunty Aaun Kya’ fame.
