Local b-boy Broly took silver in the mixed team event on the final day of breaking competitions, a feat that the spectators celebrated with loud cheers.

The rain was not an obstacle for the spectators or for spectacular dancing at the final breaking battles at the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games. With the individual competition completed, it was now time for the mixed teams tournament, another innovation in the discipline’s Youth Olympic debut.

Japan's Ram - who won the gold medal in the individual women’s event - became the heroine of the day once again as she took the top award with her teammate, Vietnam’s B4.

In the final, they beat the duo that had received the most support from the audience at Urban Park, Argentine b-boy Broly and Italy’s b-girl Lexy, who took the silver after losing the battle 7-13.

Broly and Lexy defeated France’s Señorita Carlota and China’s X-Rain in the quarterfinals, and then Austria’s Ella and Russia’s Bumblebee - gold medalist in the men's individual event - in the semifinals.

"I am filled with happiness, pride and emotion, for how well we defended ourselves with Lexy to get to the medal," said b-boy Broly. "Buenos Aires 2018 is a dream come true. It’s the best thing that has ever happened to me because I got to know different cultures and I grew a lot as a person."

Wearing the silver medal around her neck, Lexy thanked her partner and the audience for their support: “I’m proud. We danced with passion and we achieved this result. I'm going to take home so many nice memories of this country. Breaking is an art. It’s a lifestyle. I hope this helps to get more people to know about us.”

World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) President Lukas Hinder reserved special praise for the Argentian b-boy after the finals. “Broly is an outstanding personality,” Hinder said. “I saw him at the World Youth Breaking Championships in Japan, and between May and now he improved very much. He had an accelerator that I have rarely seen in an athlete’s career but he deserves to have ended up where he did. Nobody could have foreseen this, but of course it gave extra glory to the event.”
