Spain dominated in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, but another international title was awarded shortly after. On Aug. 6 and 7, some of the best b-boys in the world competed as crews and individuals for the title of international break-dancing champion.

The ever-famous Wayne Brady stepped in as host and a number of break-dancing founding fathers joined the event.

Commentary was provided by Mr. Freeze, an original member of Rock Steady Crew and a renowned pioneer of b-boying. Ground-breaking (pardon the pun) b-boys Track 2, JoJo, Ken Swift and Benji will be judged the competition, with DJ Grand Wizard Theodore and DJ P spinning the music.

Ticket prices ranged from $45 to $1,200 for a single day or $80 to $1,200 for both days.

Ultimately, Russia’s Top 9 reigned supreme. They triumphed over Killafornia, from our Cali neighbors to the west. Vegas’ own Knucklehead Zoo were nixed by Top 9 in the semifinals.

Our buddies at the Las Vegas Weekly provided some insightful coverage of the event. Check it out here, and don’t miss the championship footagePictures are also available from the Weekly.

And since Vegas isn’t exactly famous for a sports team, cheer for the b-boys we do have. Check out the footage of Knucklehead Zoo here and here.
