Important Information regarding participation at the WDSF BfG World Series in Brazil 15/02/2023

BfG Rio de Janeiro

Ahead of the upcoming WDSF Breaking for Gold World Series in Brazil on 14-15 April 2023, the World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) wishes to clarify a number of points regarding athlete eligibility and qualification.

All National Member Bodies (NMBs) are strongly advised to familiarize themselves with the information and to contact the WDSF Sports Department at for any additional explanation.

Date: 14-15 April 2023
Location: Arena Carioca 2, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Organizer: CNDD - Conselho Nacional de Danca Desportiva
Organizer contact: +55 11 96357 6450;


Three (3) athletes per gender per National Member Body (NMB) are eligible to participate.

The highest-ranking athletes per country will be automatically nominated to participate according to the WDSF BfG Ranking List (b-boys; b-girls) on 1 March 2023, unless:

  • an NMB already has a national ranking list that is officially recognized by the World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) before 1 March 2023 (i.e. the 1st day of the month immediately preceding the month of the event).


The WDSF wishes to draw attention again to the fact that from 1 January 2023, participation at Breaking For Gold World Series events will be limited to the three (3) top-ranked b-boys and three top-ranked b-girls per NMB.

For NMBs with national ranking systems approved by the WDSF: Their highest-ranking athlete (1) per gender on the WDSF BfG World Ranking List qualifies to participate at BfG World Series events in 2023, in addition to the two (2) next highest-ranked athletes per gender on the national ranking or by NMB nomination. Nominations will be made by National RLS Administrators through the WDSF Competition Registration System (CRS), subject to approval by the WDSF Sports Department. No tickets, flights, accommodation, etc., should be purchased until nominations are confirmed.

For NMBs without national ranking systems approved by the WDSF: Their three (3) highest-ranking athletes per gender on the WDSF BfG World Ranking List qualify to participate at BfG World Series events in 2023. The selection will be made according to the ranking list on the 1st day of the month immediately preceding the month of each event (1 March 2023 for the WDSF BfG World Series in Brazil).

Wild card: In accordance with the International Olympic Committee (IOC)’s Olympic Agenda 2020+5, which recommends widening the scope of engagement with and attracting the best athletes, the WDSF has implemented a wild-card system to ensure that all b-boys and b-girls around the world have an equal opportunity to participate at BfG World Series events in 2023. The WDSF Vice President for Sport has the right to grant a wild card per NMB/BfG World Series up to 1 July 2023 that will also apply to Breakers from countries without NMBs or limited or no access otherwise to WDSF events. A wild card can be issued to Breakers in countries that 1) have no athlete on the WDSF BfG World Ranking List and 2) whose National Ranking System has not been approved by the WDSF.

More information on participation at BfG World Series events and the qualification process for the Olympic Games Paris 2024 can be found here.


 NMBs still looking for recognition of their national ranking lists must immediately:

  1. submit a request to the WDSF Sports Department at
  2. provide links to the NMB website that clearly demonstrate the NMB has:
  • organized a National Breaking Championship in 2022/2023;
  • organized at least 1 additional national Breaking competition; and
  • made its National Ranking List public on the website.

If an NMB cannot provide proof to the WDSF Sports Department of the three (3) requirements mentioned above, their athlete nominations will not be accepted. In that case all three (3) athletes per gender will be selected according to the WDSF BfG World Ranking List, when possible.


 To be eligible for participation, the status of b-boys and b-girls must be “active” on the day of nomination, i.e., 1 March 2023. Please note that all athletes are automatically notified 30 days before the expiration of their license. It is the responsibility of each athlete to ensure their status remains active.
