Cheerleading and the Games


There are hundreds of different sports across the globe, and many vie and jostle for a place on the Olympic and Paralympic roster. Only a few key sports display the kind of rapid, global growth that catch people’s attention and raise the long-term potential for the sport to gain its place on the world stage – which may include Olympic and Paralympic recognition. Cheerleading is one such sport, which is currently enjoying a rapid increase in global participation, an explosion of coaching awards and newly qualified coaches, strides forward in the quality of competition and development of Governing bodies, and a clear denunciation between the dance and stunting disciplines of the sport.
