Silverback Open Championships 2018

Our Facebook Page


The 2018 Silverback Open Championships
took place on October 27th and 28th, 2018 at a new venue named 2300 Arena, based in South Philadelphia. Nearly 850 breakers from 50 countries battled to get into the final rounds on a main stage and two cypher stages with three giant video screens run by and8 from Germany scheduling the breakers during the preliminaries and final rounds.

A panel of seven judged the 1-v-1 Open, 1-v-1 Bgirl, 3-v-3 Open, and 1-v-1 U14, with two alternates available in the event a judge happened to be in the same crew as a competitor, which brought the total judging panel to nine for the weekend.

The Silverback Open is a Champions Series level event on the Pro Breaking Tour and is organized by Silverback Bboy Events. The 2018 event was the fifth Silverback Open – the 1-v-1 Open is one of the most challenging breaking events in the world, given the depth and quality of the competitive field, featuring scores of past winners of leading international breaking competitions and Pro Breaking Tour events, many of whom do not get past the preliminaries.

As with all competitions, there can only be one first place winner in each category, and the Silverback Open had its well deserving victors in every category. In the 1-v-1 Open battle, Victor (Squadron / MF Kidz / Red Bull BC One All Stars) took first place over Stripes (Main Ingredientz / Flipside Kings); for the Bgirls, 15-year old Logistx (Underground Flow) prevailed over Jilou (Jimakeno Crew / Nin10do Crew); in the 3-v-3 Open, Plan B (Menno, Hong10, and Vero) took first over Navi Crew (Lussy Sky, Beetle, and Shigekix); and, in the U14 category, Lorenzo (born in 2005) took first over Kid Dynamite (2010).

Results of the final rounds are available on the and8 website.
