The World Urban Games 2019 programme includes six competition sports and two showcase sports. Breaking has been chosen for the inaugural competition programme.
Breaking, together with 3x3 basketball, BMX freestyle park, freestyle flying disc, parkour and freestyle roller skate, has been chosen as a competition sport at the inaugural World Urban Games 2019 Budapest. Indoor rowing and laser run will feature as showcase sports.
WDSF President, Mr. Shawn Tay, said: ”Breaking is a spectacular, energetic, fresh and entertaining sport that not only has the power to inspire youth, but also offers a great spectator experience for all. We are sure that Breaking will find its space and fit well into the spirit of the World Urban Games. Breaking represents a true urban sport; it is part of a new trend, and has the possibility to engage the community through social, cultural and educational activities.”
The varied sports programme is a reflection of GAISF’s vision for the Games, providing a global stage for it’s International Federations to highlight their emerging sports disciplines. The pioneering event presents a great opportunity for IFs to reach a new generation of fans in urban communities. In addition to the competition and showcase sports, demonstrations of music, dance and urban culture will also feature as part of the event.
The World Urban Games Budapest 2019, powered by GAISF, will take place in September 13-15, 2019.
