The Dutch B-Boy and Russian B-Girl come out on top in Mumbai, India.
This is the 16th edition of the world’s biggest one-on-one breaking competition, Red Bull BC One, in Mumbai, India, with victories for B-Boy Menno of the Netherlands and B-Girl Kastet from Russia.
The World Final was held at the National Sports Club of India and was attended by thousands of spectators in one of the fastest growing hip-hop scenes in the world. Side performances featured some of the biggest names in India: Dhol Dhamaal, V Unbeatable and rap legend DIVINE.
For Menno, this is the third time he has been crowned World Champion, after winning Red Bull BC One in 2014 and 2017.
Menno said: “This win means a lot to me. It’s the perfect closure for this year, I’ve been working very hard for it. The battles weren’t easy, we only battled three rounds, but my opponent, Killa Kolya, went all in. I’m very happy to take this title back home – it’s dedicated to my next kid.”
Kastet added: “I didn’t think about the title. I thought about growing in my understanding of dance and hip-hop culture. But when I got the title, I was very happy and it’s great to take the belt. Dance will grow when you put in the hard work and know more about yourself.”
