BMX riders, breakers and skaters are being invited to showcase their talent as part of a new International Olympic Committee (IOC) competition.

The IOC has launched the "Let’s Move Street Challenge" with the support of Olympic partner Samsung.

Enthusiasts in BMX, breaking and skateboarding have been given the chance to enter the challenge with the submission of a 30 second video of themselves performing their best moves.

Among the men’s and women’s prizes include BMX awards in freestyle park, real street and dirt as well as skateboarding awards in park, real street and street park and breaking awards in best round, power moves and footwork.

Mixed gender creative awards are also up for grabs in best produced, street culture and most surprising.

The application process is set to begin on September 23 and close on October 21, with the first-ever Let’s Move Street Challenge winners expected to be crowned in November.

Entries are expected to be scored by a panel of expert judges and influential figures from across the three sports.

Fans are also set to get the opportunity to vote for their favourite videos.

Winners of the judges’ awards are due to get the chance to enjoy a behind-the-scenes trip to an Olympic Games qualification event.

The Let’s Move Street Challenge has been created with the aim of getting young people more active by practising urban sports.

It also comes after the IOC’s Let’s Move initiative which was launched this year after the World Health Organization found that one in four adults and more than 80 per cent of young people do not meet the recommended minimum activity levels needed for optimum health.

Britain’s Olympic BMX freestyle gold medallist Charlotte Worthington said she was in full support of the creation of the Let’s Move Street Challenge.

"Taking up BMX totally transformed my life," said Worthington.

"Mentally, it’s taken me to great places of achievement, community and general happiness in what I do in life.

"Physically, it made me stronger and proud of what my body can do.

"I love the concept of the Let’s Move Street Challenge - the three sports - BMX freestyle, breaking and skateboarding - are really creative.

"Everyone is going to have their own expression on that, and that doesn’t necessarily mean the most difficult trick, or line.

"It will be fantastic to see a variety of age groups and levels embrace the challenge, getting creative and putting something of themselves out there.

"That’s going to inspire someone else, it’s going to inspire me, for sure."
