Cricket, Breakdancing, 7 Other Sports Still Waiting for Word on 2028 Los Angeles Olympic Status
LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) Cricket, breakdancing and flag football are still waiting to find out if they will be added to the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics.
The process to add sports that organizers in Los Angeles want at the 2028 Games was unexpectedly delayed Wednesday by the International Olympic Committee.
The IOC cited ongoing discussions with L.A. officials as the issue a clear rift between the two sides despite the timetable being known for years and only two days before a key meeting to let nine candidate sports know which is set to get Olympic status.
As a result, the IOC-appointed panel studying sports program changes has not yet had the opportunity to hold its meeting to prepare its final recommendation.
