Last night, B-Boy Victor claimed the title as The Red Bull BC One North American champion.
The Red Bull BC One is the most prestigious one-on-one b-boying competition in the world and last night 16 B-Boys went head to head in the North American Final at the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas.
After four rounds of one-on-one battles at the new Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, Victor, from Kissimmee, Fla., emerged as the champion and advanced to the World Final in Paris.
“It feels really good to win. Last year I lost in the first round and felt horrible and I didn’t want that to happen this year. I trained so hard and I’m so happy because all of that training was worth it. I feel really good about the competition tonight, there were some crazy battles and I feel great about representing North America in Paris! Shout out to my family, especially my dad because he believed in me and told me I was going to win. I’m proud and I hope he’s proud too.”
Sway Calloway (Host):
“What a great experience. We saw people of every age, people from all colors and all walks of life come together for the culture and the right reasons. I think we really just witnessed Hip Hop in its purest form. Salutes go out to Red Bull and Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas for making this happen. We saw 16 gladiators go at it. Victor is a worthy champion, and he earned it. It’s easy to say that he was the most consistent throughout the whole evening, I think he’ll do great representing North America in the Red Bull BC One World Championship in Paris.”
