France’s Parkour fans mull idea of future Olympic inclusion

Ivry-sur-Seine (France) (AFP) – With only a few months left before the Paris 2024 Games, Parkour fans gather on the outskirts of the French capital for a speedrun event, and discuss whether or not their sport may one day have a place of its own at the Olympics. The sport was considered for the Paris 2024 Games but certain Parkour practitioners are sceptical. “As far as the physical discipline, it’s very comparable. But the ethos behind it is quite different,” says Parkour fan Miles Calderon.
