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 has been unexpectedly delayed by the International Olympic Committee. The IOC cited “ongoing discussions” with L.A. officials as the issue.

The sports are cricket, baseball-softball, flag football, lacrosse, breaking, karate, kickboxing, squash and motorsports.
