KENYER MENDEZ, VENEZUELAN BREAKDANCER, SAYING:

"You need to be in good physical condition to perform each trick. Even for the easiest trick, you need (to be in) good physical condition. It is why it (break dancing) has to be admired and respected like the other sports. Many people only see the good, others only the bad, but I hope now, as break dance is part of the Olympic games, people will see it as a professional sport and no longer as something that happens on the streets, but as something on an academic level and this is the goal of all of this."

provisionally added to the 2024 Paris Games
