Last Friday, Sin City turned into Spin City as 16 of the continent’s best B-Boys battled head-to-head at the Red Bull BC One North America Final, hosted by Sway Calloway. 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.”
“The battles were really intense tonight. What usually happens in the first round is that everyone is going off for the first time so everything is fresh and the level of difficulty is really high. But down the line you see who has more variety with movements, different types of patterns and technical moves. In the end, those are the guys that started to shine more. Vicious Victor and Gravity’s final battle was really intense, but Vicious Victor was dropping a bit more of everything to win.”
