NEW YORK CITY, April 24, 2021 – World Bboy Battle, a fast-growing US pro Breaking sports league whose mission is to inspire and deliver the world’s most thrilling Breaking sports events, announces that its next event, WBB #5 World Championships, will lead the league into national expansion through television and digital media. This unprecedented event will give Breaking and sports fans across the US a chance to watch the biggest names in Breaking battle for the sport’s world title and largest prize money in Breaking sports history.
“No one has ever seen a pro Breaking sports competition on television. The WBB gives sports fans a chance to watch these amazing athletes perform and compete at the highest level of competitive Breaking. Today’s young generation love sports, amazing athletes, music, drama and suspense, and WBBL events are a fusion of all those elements.”
— Gary Newton, VP World Bboy Battle
In 2015, at Queens Theatre in NYC, World Bboy Battle #1 became the first pro Breaking sports competition of its kind using a 100-point scoring system WBB developed. Since then, the WBB league has been thrilling local fans from New York City with a Breaking sport that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
Breaking demands extreme physical exertion and skill, and has a high level of inherent danger. “American Journal of Sports Medicine,” reports in Breakdance Injuries and Overuse Syndromes in Amateurs and Professionals, that wrist and hand fractures, thighbone fractures, slipped spinal discs, and concussions were among the acute injuries suffered by Breakers.
Because Breakers’ risk physical injury every time they compete, WBB will provide licensed physical therapists at all their events to help keep them injury free.
WBB #5 WORLD BREAKING CHAMPIONSHIPS
Biggest names in Breaking. Epic head-to-head matchups. Every match is its own championship event. The WBB #5 television broadcast will give fans across the nation a first look at a pro Breaking sports event three years before Breaking debuts at the Paris 2024 Olympics. Fans can follow WBB on social media and subscribe to WBB updates and newsletters for more details as it developes.
