What’s up TBT faithful? Have you had another week full of great soccer memories? I know I have.
The memory that kept coming back to me was chock full of intense soccer skills. But not on the pitch.
What I’m remembering took place in Brazil in 2014, and no, it’s not the World Cup.
To give you a little taste, here’s the hype video:
Alright, are you sufficiently hyped? I know I am.
If you didn’t keep up with it while it went on, the tournament is Red Bull’s annual freestyle tournament.
The rules are simple enough: two competitors enter the ring to duel their street soccer skills in 30 sec bouts of a three minute round.
Both the women’s and men’s side held fierce competition. I really recommend going back and rewatching the entire event if freestyle soccer is your cup of tea. However, just like any good recap, this will just be the winners.
On the women’s side, Melody Donchet from France dangled the competition.
On the men’s side, Andrew Henderson from Britain wowed the crowd.
