WDSF President holds fruitful discussions with IOC EB Member Ser Miang Ng 23/04/2019

Mr Ser Miang NG, Executive Board Member of the IOC and Mr Shawn Tay, President of WDSF

World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) President Shawn Tay met with Ser Miang Ng, Executive Board Member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), on 18 April in Singapore to discuss a range of topics related to WDSF’s role as a valued member of the Olympic Movement.

President Tay said he was delighted to meet with Mr. Ng, and the two had very positive and productive discussions. 

During the meeting, the pair discussed a number of wide-ranging issues, including: the governance, roles and responsibilities of the WDSF as an IOC Internationally Recognised Sports Federation; the possible inclusion of the dance sport discipline Breaking in the Summer Olympic Games Paris 2024 and the development of the WDSF’s other disciplines.

President Tay said he valued the input from the long-time Olympic and sports administrator and added that he looked forward to continued dialogue with Mr. Ng in the months ahead.

The IOC Executive Board on 27 March approved a proposal by the organisers of the Olympic Games Paris 2024 to include Breaking (in addition to Skateboarding, Sport Climbing and Surfing) on the sports programme for their edition of the Games. The full IOC Session will vote on the proposal at its next meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland from 24-26 June, with a final decision set for December 2020 following the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.
