The Let’s Move Street Challenge invited people everywhere to showcase their best moves and creative skills across a host of award categories in BMX, breaking and skateboarding by sharing a video of up to 30 seconds. Thousands entered from all corners of the world.

Tens of thousands have already cast their vote on, with voting closing on 12 November.

Aside from the fan favorite award, 21 winners will be awarded an all-access trip to the Olympic Qualifier Series in Shanghai.

Judges include BMX rider Nina Buitrago (USA), Skateboarder Jean-Baptiste Gillet (France) and B-Girl Narumi (Japan).

All the winners will be announced during a one-off show on 12 November that will bring together athletes and fans from BMX, breaking and skateboarding in a celebration of these sports and the incredible stories and communities that surrounds them.

Fans can join a live chat to share their thoughts and reactions to the winners and have the chance to win exclusive Let’s Move Street Challenge merchandise.

The Olympic Let’s Move Street Challenge Awards show will be streaming on on Sunday, 12 November, at 7 p.m. CET.

The Let’s MoveStreet Challenge aims to inspire and enable young people to embrace the joy of movement and a more active lifestyle by practising urban sports.

It builds on the successes of the IOC’s Let’s Move initiative, launched on Olympic Day 2023 following the World Health Organization’s finding that one in four adults and over 80 per cent of young people do not meet the recommended minimum activity levels needed for optimum health.

Two of the barriers to physical activity most often cited by young people are ability and access. Sports, including BMX, breaking and skateboarding, are often accessible, inclusive and community-driven.

Through this competition, the IOC wants to inspire and enable more young people to move using urban sport.
