In the historic Pelourinho Square in Salvador, Brazil, the grand finale of Red Bull Street Style, the world’s premier freestyle soccer tournament, lived up to its hype as the best of the best from 44 nations battled it out for the biggest prize in their sport. In 2013 Szymon Skalski tricked his way to the men’s championship in Tokyo. The rules are simple: three minutes, two players, one ball. An incredible finish in his last 30-second block saw Briton Andrew Henderson snatch his first Red Bull Street Style World Final title. Carlos Alberto Iacono finished in second place, while 16-year-old Erlend Fagerli beat the odds to finish third in spectacular style and Melody Donchet won the women’s title.
