Not only was squash snubbed for Tokyo but now for Paris. And breakdancing gets in.

Ridiculous- squash is one of the most international of sports, Egypt dominates currently but countries in Europe, north and South America, Africa , Asia, Oceania all have players near the top of the pro game. And it is a true sport , you have to be fit to do well, and the pro tour, PSA Tour , is well established.

They already have three racket sports though.

I don't know much about breakdancing but the IOC are conscious about attracting a young audience. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before esports is included.

They are also reducing the number of competitors as the size is starting to get out of hand
