The WDSF General Manager, Guillaume Felli, sent out letters to each of the 12 National Member Bodies (NMBs) which succeeded - at the Qualifier in Taipei City, TPE, on 2 December - to keep b-boys and b-girls in contention for one of the 24 places in DanceSport's contingent for the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games.
30 breakers representing 13 countries in Asia and Oceania advance to the third and final stage of the Olympic qualification process: the WDSF World Youth Breaking Championship on 20 May 2018 in Kawasaki, near Tokyo, JPN.
"It is extremely important that you get in touch with your National Olympic Committee (NOC) to discuss the qualification and provide the NOC with positive background information about DanceSport as well as the discipline of breaking in your country," Felli wrote in the letters. "That will help to guide your NOC towards a favourable decision when it comes to validating participation in the YOG," he concluded.
Letters wents out to the following NMBs (in the order of the number of athletes qualified and the alphabet):
Japan (2 b-girls and 3 b-boys)
South Korea (2 b-girls and 3 b-boys)
Chinese Taipei (2 b-girls and 3 b-boys)
China (1 b-girl and 3 b-boys)
Hong Kong (2 b-girls)
Philippines (2 b-boys)
Kyrgyzstan (1 b-girl)
Malaysia (1 b-boy)
Thailand (1 b-boy)
Vietnam (1 b-boy)
Only one single country which qualified an athlete (B-Boy Tricky Tricks) does not have a NMB (yet): Nepal!
