THE SETTING

The competition began with the Sick 16, the top sixteen Bboy/Bgirl pros who advanced from the qualifiers the day before. The World Bboy Battle 2 Championships featured not one, but two Bgirls (Mantis and Kayla) to advance from the Qualifiers the day before at Queens Community House – a first in World Bboy Battle history, proving that Bgirls have what it takes to compete with their male counterparts. Also to advance were world renowned and USA champions Bboys El Nino and Gravity.

THE DRAMA AND SUSPENSE

Scoring was tight at each level of battle as the scores from judges Whorah, Ekcite and Thesis came in after each round broken down into Powermoves, Footwork and Freestyle. El Nino put on a Bboy clinic leading the scoring for the majority of the competition. Gravity was right on there with him showing off his strong will and skills even after suffering injuries to his back and legs from a motorcycle crash a couple of months before. Not too far behind was Jose C and Uncle Will.

THE RESULTS

The demands for stamina which affects execution proved too much for Gravity and Uncle Will as both faltered in the Final 4 and failed to advance to the Championships which featured El Nino battling against Jose C who proved his skill, stamina and execution in this heavy weight competition. In the Championships, in an epic showdown between El Nino and Jose C., execution and stamina were the deciding factor for El Nino in taking home the WBB2 Title.
