What are the new sports being introduced in the Paris 2024 Olympics?

There are four new and distinctive sports making their debut at the Paris 2024 Olympics:

olympics breaking


It is a dance-style which emerged from hip hop culture, and is characterized by acrobatic movements performed to rap music.

olympics sport climbing

Sport Climbing

In the Olympics, this sport involves three formats - boulder, speed, and lead. Boulder is when athletes climb 4.5m  high walls without a rope, speed is a race against time where athletes scale a 15m high wall with 5° inclination, and lead is where athletes climb (as high as they can) a 15m high wall in 6 minutes, without having seen the route before.

olympics skartboarding


The athletes will compete in two formats - park and street, where they carry out their most impressive tricks. They are judged based on speed, the degree of difficulty, and the range of moves.

olympics surfing


Since Paris isn’t known for its “waves”, this event will take place in Tahiti, 10,000 miles away. Surfers will perform manoeuvers and tricks on the waves, and will be judged on their speed, power, and flow.

Olympic events taking place outside Paris

While most of the Olympic events will be held in Paris and its metropolitan region, including neighboring Saint-Denis, Le Bourget, Nanterre, Versailles, and Vaires-sur-Marne.[ However, there are some events taking place elsewhere in France:

Lyon, Saint-Etienne, Nice, Bordeaux, Nantes and Marseille: these cities will host men's and women's football matches

Marseille: This city will host sailing events, which can be watched from the temporary stands set up on the city’s stunning coastal cliffs.

Lille: the best handball teams (men and women) are competing for the gold medal at the Pierre de Mauroy stadium in Villeneuve-d'Ascq, near Lille. It is just one hour by TGV from Paris.

Tahiti: On the other side of the world, surfers gather at Teahupo'o village to test themselves against the waves.

How to get around Paris during the Olympic and Paralympic Games?

To guarantee the safety of spectators, athletes, and residents, as well as to institute traffic regulations before and during the events, the Paris Police Prefecture will implement various perimeters around the competition venues.

Safety perimeters

Safety perimeters have been created to prioritize safety while also ensuring the smooth flow of pedestrian and cyclist activities. These zones serve to regulate or limit motorized traffic, thus enhancing overall safety measures. There are two distinct types of safety zones:

  • The organizer perimeter: encompasses the immediate surroundings of the infrastructure built for the Olympics, including the competition sites.
  • The State perimeter: this is dedicated to safeguarding local residents and spectators. It comprises three concentric circles; the innermost circle encircles the site to safeguard both the premises and individuals, the second circle restricts road traffic in the vicinity unless specifically permitted, and the outermost circle manages road traffic to redirect passing vehicles effectively.
