2016 - Let's Get It

First of all, happy new year everybody!!! :-)

I hope everyone had a great start and what more can I say?! Let's make 2016 count!!!

 

So I started this year with creating a few freestyle videos. A freestyler named Hassaan from Syria moved to Berlin a couple of months ago and he already became a good friend. :-) Here's a video we did together:

Since he has a different style, I already learnt so many cool new tricks from him and I can truly say I'm blessed to be able training with him! :-)

As you guys might have already realized, one of my main goals for 2016 is to create a lot of high quality and cool videos.

So I made another video. This time with my homie Alexander from FC. Footstar.

Go check it out here folks:

And last but not least I went viral with this video:

More cool stuff happened this month but that's it for now folks. :-)

Looking forward to February,

keep on ballin'

October - December 2015

No rest. No days off.

In winter there's normally not as much going on as in summer since there aren't as many sport events happening (except winter sport events but that's too far away from football haha). Anyway there were still some notable things happening.

In November I flew to Paris to present the new DFB away jersey for the Euro 2016 with some lads of the Club of 35. The Club of 35 is a football club which consists of some of the best youth football players from Berlin.

I can tell you one thing about this trip straight away: it was sooooooo much fun. :-)

Here's a short summary of what happened:

we flew to Paris on Thursday the 12th of November. We were driven straight from Charles-de-Gaulle to the event venue - the Adidas „Future Arena“. Once we were there we had a couple of hours to kill which was awesome. I met up with Russian freestylers and street-football players I've never seen before. Shout out to Street Madness! They even recognised me but unfortunately I didn't recognize them... my bad, sorry guys. :)

I also met some freestylers from S3 and the SkillTwins as well. It was huuuuuuuge. Zidane and Xavi were there and we did our show with the the 2014 World Cup winner Per Mertesacker.

Mind-blowing!

And here are some pictures:

The next day was packed, too. First we got to discover the city of Paris. It's such a wonderful city and definitely worth a visit. We went to the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre and some more beautiful places. Here are my favourite pictures:

And once we were at the Eiffel Tower, a photographer asked me if I could do some freestyle tricks for him. I did so and you know what happened? A couple of days later he sent me this video:

DAAAAAAAAAMMMMNNNN!!! I'm blessed... this is unbelievable! Shout out to Mattia for the footage! Thank you soooooo much. :-)

At the end of the day we went to a a fancy restaurant and afterwards we watched the game France vs. Germany.... Everybody knows what happened next so I won't talk about it so much anymore. But yeah... it was shocking...

The next day we flew back home to Berlin.

Of course I also made a VLOG about the trip to Paris. If you want to visually see what went down, simply click the video underneath. :D

Apart from the trip to Paris I had a couple of performances and created a new video. I wanted to make something different so I decided to film a video “VHS STYLE” with the app “VHS Camcorder”.

No freestyler has ever done a video like this before so I'm very proud to be the first one.

So yeah, I'll keep it short. Here you go:

That's it from this years summary. I really hope you liked reading what happened this year and I wish you Merry Christmas and all the best for 2016! :-)

Keep on baaaaaallliiiiiiiiinnnnn'

July – September 2015

These months were packed. I was hitting the road so often, it was incredible.

With that being said, I will only break down the highlights I experienced in this time period.

Let's kick it off with an amazing event. Kai, a street-soccer player from Berlin, and me were flown over to Stockholm to take part in an Adidas #bethedifference 2 vs. 2 competition against locals. We did really good even though we only advanced to the top 8 but still we delivered a great show and it was soooo much fun. And this is what it's all about - having fun. :-) I met up with Cornelius and Liicht as well, two street-soccer players from Copenhagen Panna House. These guys are always so cool to hang out with. I actually know Liicht since 2010 I think. We first met up at the World Freestyle-Football Championship in Prague. Lucky me that the pannas these two folks gave me in Sweden haven't been recorded. :D

THE HIGHTLIGHT OF THE YEAR was to be invited being one of three judges for the European Freestyle-Football Championship in Amsterdam. What a huge honour!!! Along with the legends Clyde and Martin Schopf, I decided about who will take the crown. Even though it was a lot of stress sometimes and I would've loved to freestyle more, in the end it was all worth it. The experiences I gained as a judge were tremendous. I'm so happy I got the opportunity and I only received positive feedback which makes me really proud. If you want to see how my journey looked like, make sure to watch my Vlogs below. Big shout-out once again to Lucaso for making this event happen. And congratulations to Tobias Becs aka the Norwegian warrior for winning the competition. You deserved it 100%!!!

 

Another highlight was taking place in August. I travelled to Munich for the Audi Cup 2015. The hotel we were at was a whole another level. Heading to the fitness room in the morning, eating breakfast, performing in the Allianz Arena and watching a couple of games. After that taking a swim in the hotel pool and sweating in the sauna. But none of these experiences would've been the same and as awesome if I wouldn't have shared them with my very good friend Julian Hollands. Since 2006 we are like best friends and whenever I see him, it makes me smile so much. Shout out to my homie!! Can't wait to see you again bro. :-)

And yeah, we also performed at the saison opening event for VFL Wolfsburg. Take a look at some pictures of this performance and the Audi Cup LP below. :-)

 

See you for the next blog post guys!
