Break Free 06/01/2018

B-Boy Moy @ Little Shao Moises "Moy" Rivas and Anniina "AT" Tikka are the two Athlete Role Models appointed by the IOC. The organisers of the Buenos Aires 2018 YOG have recently talked to Moy about life, the hip hop culture and the Youth Olympic Games.

On the sporting side of things, Moy sees breaking very close to gymnastics. "Every gymnast I’ve seen performing a floor routine has attempted to dance," he says.

“Breaking is such a physically demanding dance! People forget the athleticism it requires. But once it gets displayed on a platform like the Youth Olympic Games, I think people are going to start to realise, like 'wow,' this is very, very close to a floor routine in the Olympics but with more musicality and rhythmic approach.”
