Moving To Stage Two 08/08/2017

B-Boy Benz and Nosher Crew, VIE It has been an intense week that followed an even more intense day. On Monday 31 July - very close to the end of the day as per UTC - the uploading of videos was brought to an abrupt halt ... "We are experiencing technical challenges on breakingforgold.com," was the word that went out through the social media. "Send your video to YOGbreaking@wdsf.org!"

These challenges were later explained by our tech partners: "The reason we had issues is that the platform went from 200 requests per minute to over 1000 requests per minute within 5 minutes. The system is set to autoscale, however it took a while to scale out the servers for such a demand." With everybody procrastinating until the deadline for submission was only minutes away, this was bound to happen.

It took a few more days than scheduled to round up all the submissions from where the last-second entrants had sent or uploaded them in their despair. This, in turn, delayed the handover of the videos to the ten judges. But in the end it all worked out and the people doing the scrutiny have just announced that the results should be online sometime during the day tomorrow - 9 August - on breakingforgold.com.

B-Boy Benz (pictured above with his crew) will find out whether he will move on to Stage Two of "Breaking for Gold" or not. He is from Vietnam, the Continental Qualifier he would be assigned to takes places in Taipei, TPE, on 2 December.

I'm B-Boy Benz (Nosher Crew) from Hoi An, Vietnam. Breaking is my passion and I really want to join worldwide breaking events to represent Vietnam and battle with other b-boys all around the world. Breaking For Gold is my chance, so check it out!
