1st Day of Mixed Battles Competition at the Youth Olympic Games 11/10/2018

With International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach together with the WDSF President Lukas Hinder looking on, the 24 breakers competing at the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games raised the roof again today in the Urban Park.

B-girl Emma (CAN) & B-boy KennyG (TPE) finished at the top of the rankings following the preliminaries of the Bonnie & Clyde (2vs2 mixed-gender) battles, which featured some well-choreographed moves between the pairings of mixed nationalities, who clearly spent a great deal of time working on their routines a day earlier.

B-girl Lexy (ITA) & b-boy Broly (ARG) were not far behind the leaders, much to the delight of the home crowd. Afterwards, the duo was swamped by fawning fans looking for pictures together.

Asked about the difference between the 1vs1 battles and the Bonnie & Clyde competitions, judge Narumi said: “It’s very different to the 1vs1,” she said. “It was a different atmosphere today when they battled. It’s more fun and it’s great for the young breakers to connect with people from different countries. Because they are still young, they can learn not only more about dance but also about culture and personality. This experience will be good for them all for the rest of their lives.”

Also advancing to tomorrow’s Knockout Stage were Anastasia (LAT) & Shigekix (JPN), Yell (KOR) & Jordan (RSA), Ella (AUT) & Bumblebee (RUS), Ram (JPN) & B4 (VIE), Señorita Carlota (FRA) & X-Rain (CHN), and Vicky (NED) & Bad Matty (ITA).
