Red Bull Street Style has changed my life. It has made freestyle more professional. Before Red Bull Street Style existed, I used to do demos and go to all the events I possibly could to get exposure. There was no such a thing as the world champions’ title. Now, Red Bull is doing this contest all over the world and thus helps our sport to get a more professional image I can market myself to the entire world now thanks to Red Bull. To freestyle means that you can be good with nothing but a ball, no field is necessary. It’s just like poker: There are rules you play by… The true magician takes the whole deck of cards, eliminates all the rules and starts doing something entirely new. We do just the same, except we do it with soccer. Today we are in Lausanne for a workshop with the participants of the Red Bull Street Style. The national qualifiers will be held next year. The winner will represent Switzerland in September 2012 at the world finals in Italy. So, we were in Zurich yesterday, and today, we are in Lausanne. We let the kids discover freestyle, and we helped the participants get better according to the three Red Bull Street Style criteria – style, creativity, and control. Sean is a good coach, he’s a world champion and has done a great job coaching us today. In order to win the 2012 qualifier, you have to develop your own style and to be able to showcase your personality. If you show the same moves as everybody else, you won’t win. You have to know new tricks if you want to stand out from all the rest. You need a battle spirit to keep your opponents at bay. I will definitely be at the next Red Bull Street Style qualifier in Switzerland, because it’s a great opportunity to compete. The vibes are always great, and there’s a lot of emotions. I can’t wait for it to start.
