B-Boy C-Sick’s head-spinning antics and power moves won him the Red Bull BC One Cypher Kuwait for the third consecutive year with a performance that left 15 of the top-level B-Boys in town behind. The stage was on fire with Kuwait’s best 16 B-Boys jumping and spinning for the coveted prize. The event, which took place at Radisson Blu was judged by breaking legends B-Boy Cico (Italy), B-Boy Roxrite (Mexico) and B-Boy Nabil (France).
As the pulsing music by DJ Flash B boomed through the outdoor stage, the B-Boys competed in 14 sizzling head-to-head battles – bouncing, dropping, and popping back up again towards the end of each round. More than 300 spectators gathered to witness the explosive atmosphere – the crowd was going crazy and the B-Boys were getting more fierce and whirling up madly to the beat and the applause of the crowd.
The 2016 final battle was a repeat of the 2015 final between B-Boy Primo and winner, B-Boy C-Sick and was as intense. However, C-Sick’s non-stop moves seemed in control and within the rhythm, taming down his opponent and achieving a third consecutive win.
After outperforming 15 of the best B-Boys, C-Sick will now double his efforts in training to represent Kuwait in the World Final in the city of Nagoya, Japan.
“It is a great pleasure to be the winner of Red Bull BC One Cypher Kuwait for the 3rd time. I am looking forward to the final in Japan in order to best present Kuwait in the World Final,” said B-Boy C-Sick, the winner.
While many competitions focus on crew battles, Red Bull BC One’s one-on-one, single elimination battle format focuses on talents and strength of the individual dancer and judges score the B-Boys on their battle strategy, power moves, dance foundation, fresh routines and overall style.
