16-year-old India Sardjoe won the breakdancing championship title last weekend. De Hagenar is the youngest participant ever to win a World Cup title. In the birthplace of hip-hop, New York, Sardjo had to impress a jury in 4 rounds.
Breakdancing is officially from 2024 Olympic sport. After skateboarding, sport climbing and surfing, breakdancing will make its debut during the Summer Games in Paris.
Sardjo had to be in the final battle Against former world champion Logistx from the United States. Despite the home game of its rival, Holland managed to convince the jury.
Last week, Sardjoe also won the European Breakdance Championships in Manchester, which puts her in a strong position to take part in the Olympic Games in 2024. So winning that world title seems like the icing on the cake.
“To win the world title during my first World Cup and then as the youngest, that’s all plus plus,” replied Sardjo, who had already started her dance career at the age of seven. “So I’m very happy that everything has gone this way and with what I’ve really achieved so far.”
The Netherlands is the first country
There was almost a final breakdance success for Holland. Lee Demeyer of Amsterdam lost to an American in the final. No fewer than 6 Dutch people have reached the final. Next year there will be many qualifying moments for the Olympic Games.
