Twerking To Become An Olympic Sport in 2024

The Olympic Sports Game is about to grow even more intriguing and keep you glued to your televisions, as confirmations have been made that ‘Twerking’ will be introduced to it beginning in 2024.

Doesn’t it sound strange? Yes, to you, but not to everyone else.

In a meeting on Friday, April 1, 2022, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced a new four-sport Olympic qualifier series for the forthcoming Paris 2024 Games, which includes BMX freestyle, breaking, skateboarding, and sport climbing.

According to a statement on its official website, the Olympic Games Paris 2024 festivals will offer a new Olympic experience to fans from around the world, integrating sport with music, art, and culture.

However, according to a new statement spotted online, plans are in the works to incorporate twerking into the Olympic Sports Games as well.

Twerking is a form of dance that originated in New Orleans’ bounce music culture in the late 1980s, according to Wikipedia, while the Oxford English Dictionary defines it as dancing “in a sexually provocative manner, employing thrusting movements of the bottom and hips while in a low, crouching stance.”

One committee member said in a statement that numerous celebrities and public figures had been observed twerking, and she was blown away by rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s twerking skills. Another committee member, however, pointed out that the soon-to-be sport is a global phenomenon, citing Jamaican singer Spice as a wonderful example of the dance.

“During the games, contenders will have to demonstrate how their glutes’ cheeks strike every beat of a song while simultaneously making unique movements; a skill that not everyone can master,” said committee members Margret and Antonette Willis.

Although the rounds are still being finalized, members have revealed that contestants would have to dance to a version of the song “April Fools” performed by new singer Gotchya in the first round in 2024.
