The World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) and Chinese DanceSport Federation are pleased to announce that a new date for the rescheduled WDSF World Breaking Championships in Nanjing, China has been set for 20 June 2021.
Originally scheduled to take place in August 2020, the Championships were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This rescheduled event will take place at the Lishui Sports Centre and is expected to attract some 150 b-boys and b-girls.
“The success of the 2019 Breaking World Championships in Nanjing gives us great confidence in our Chinese hosts, who are aiming to organise an even more spectacular event next year,” said WDSF President Shawn Tay. “The health of the Breakers, organisers and fans remains our top priority, of course, and we are committed to working with the local organisers to ensure the best and safest conditions possible.”
The WDSF will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation around the world and follow recommendations from the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the government of the People’s Republic of China with regard to the organisation of the World Championships.
Detailed information on the updated deadlines and qualification procedures will be communicated in the coming months.
The WDSF World Breaking Championships will be jointly organised by the WDSF, the Chinese DanceSport Federation, the Social Sports Administration Centre of Jiangsu Province, the Nanjing Sports Bureau, and the Lishui District People’s Government of Nanjing City.
B-girl Ami (JPN) and B-boy Menno (NED) are the reigning world champions, having topped the podium at the 2019 event.View more news
