Breakdancing is a sport in this day and age. 19 of the world’s best b-boy crews faced-off on Nov 17th in the world championship of breakdancing, the Braun Battle of the Year (BOTY). After an epic night of b-boy action French crew Vagabonds were crowned the 2012 Braun Battle of the Year champions for the second year in a row after an electric battle against Flooriorz of Japan. 

The finals attracted crews from all over the world. Throughout the year, regional qualifiers took place. The countries represented were: Spain, Israel, Japan, Morroco, Italy, France, South Africa, Germany, Belarus, Algeria, Greece, Tunisia, Taiwan, Belgium, Austria, Korea, Nigeria and Singapore. The night unfolded with each crew performing a six-minute choreographed routine. The five judges looked at synchronicity, stage-presence, choreography and their choice of music. In contrast to previous years, the six best crews, not four, then went forward to the final battles stage.
