Freestyle Session has always been a gathering of the worldwide bboy and bgirl community and this year was no different.  There were familiar faces from many scenes, crossing multiple generations, all getting down together with a vibe like no other. BBoys and BGirls showed up from all corners of the globe to compete at this year’s World Finals event all hoping to grab a spot in the top 32 bracket.  With a payout at the top 32 level, all the breakers had incentive to give it their all in hopes to advance and with a steady flow of Monster Energy, the dancers had no trouble bringing their A-game. It was one of the most anticipated events of the year and now that the dust has cleared, we have our champions from the Freestyle Session World Finals, Pro Breaking Tour, Championship Series event.

In the 1-on-1 battle, El Nino took first place over Issei.

In the 3-on-3 battle it was Found Nation who took first place over Polskee Flavour.

In the 1-on-1 Bgirl battle,  Yasmin took first place over Narumi.

There was also a 2-on-2 Hip Hop/House Battle, Kids 2-on-2 Battle, 1-on-1 Popping Battle and 4-on-4 Skillset Performance Competition.
