We are sure that Breaking will find its space and fit well into the spirit of the World Urban Games. Breaking represents a true urban sport; it is part of a new trend, and has the possibility to engage the community through social, cultural and educational activities.”

The varied sports programme is a reflection of GAISF’s vision for the Games, providing a global stage for it’s International Federations to highlight their emerging sports disciplines.
