Four new sports will make their first Olympic appearance at the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018. The sports that have been added at the request of the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee are dancesport, karate, roller sports and sport climbing.
The inclusion of the sports is indicative of the YOG as a place of innovation and incubation, with the aim of increasing youth appeal and engagement. The four sports will join 28 others in a 32-strong sporting programme in the Argentine capital from 6 to 18 October.
In Lausanne 2020, the Ski Mountaineering will participate for the first time in the Olympic programme history.
