Breaking New Ground at the Olympics
Breaking (or breakdancing) is one of the four pillars of hip-hop, alongside graf, MCing, and turntabling, birthed 50 years ago in the Bronx. It’s set to debut as the newest sport introduced at the Paris 2024 Summer Olympics.
Lowe Napalan, President of AUSBreaking and coordinator for the QMS 2023 WDSF Oceania Breaking Championships, was on Tuesday Drive to chat about the hype surrounding the artform of breaking, ahead of the competitive Olympic-qualifiers at Lower Town Hall this weekend.
