Korean B-boy group wins world title
B-boy group The Jinjo Crew was named “World’s Best Crew” at this year’s U.K. B-Boy Championships on Sunday in London.
Jinjo also made history by becoming the first B-boy team to claim five major titles in the 30-year history of break dancing.
In the past four years, the team placed first in competitions in the United States, France and England before claiming this year’s title.
“There is no team that can stand on its own against the talents of Jinjo crew,” said Storm, a world-class B-boy performer who has a dance company in Berlin.
In its 17th year, the U.K. B-Boy Championships is one of the world’s best-known hip-hop events. Qualifiers take place worldwide, where dancers vie for the chance to represent their countries.
