When to watch breaking during the 2024 Paris Olympic Games

During the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, B-Boys and B-Girls battle on the street on the Friday and Saturday, August 9 and 10.

The needle drops at 10 a.m. ET for preliminary battles, and the action resumes for the finals at 2 p.m. ET each day.


The home of urban sports at the 2024 Paris Olympics, La Concorde, will make room for an Olympic debut unlike any other. With a DJ supplying the soundtrack, athletes will face off in head-to-head dance battles. In order to impress the judges, athletes will need to adapt and improvise their moves as beats fill the air at the end of the Champs-Elysées.
