Logistx and Amir win the Red Bull BC One World Final 2021

The 18th edition of the Red Bull BC One World Final went down in the Ergo Arena in Gdańsk, Poland. Twelve invited B-Girls and B-Boys were chosen to compete and four more contestants per category earned entry via the Last Chance Cypher, where the champions of over 60 worldwide qualifying events fought for the remaining Top 16 Red Bull BC One World Final spots.

The Judges – Beta Rawkus, Sarah Bee, Kleju, El Nino and Menno – had the challenging task of picking the winners from a lineup full of style, power and outstanding characters. Host Amjad and DJ Plash led the audience through the evening.
After the special edition Red Bull BC One World Final in Austria in 2020, which was live-stream only without any spectators in the arena, we could feel how the crowd’s presence energised the dancers and made them go way harder in Gdansk – a testament to the importance and effect of the community in breaking.
After 30 exciting battles, the new champions of Red Bull BC One are Logistx from the USA and Amir from Kazakhstan.
The USA’s Logistx is the third Red Bull BC One B-Girl champion and the first-ever B-Girl from the United States to take home the belt. Representing Underground Flow, BreakinMIA and the Red Bull BC One All Stars, the 18-year-old is the youngest B-Girl to win the Red Bull BC One title.
From the moment she set foot on the round stage, Logistx showed a multifaceted vocabulary of moves, detailed composition of her rounds and good musicality. She beat Yell from South Korea, Japan’s Ayumi and Russians Nadia and Vavi.

After claiming the title, she said: “I’ve definitely dreamed about winning this belt many times, but what means the most to me from this experience isn’t the belt. It isn’t even the title. It’s deeper for me. I wanted to win, because if I did, I knew that whatever I have to say, people are going to listen to me. What I want to say first is that everyone is capable of winning, because I lost and I had to come back from that.”
Judge Kleju said: “I am very happy for Logistx. I was teaching her many times in workshops. I could see her potential many years ago and always supported her. I was happy to see her killing it and going through every battle.”

Logan Edra, aka Logistx, was born and raised in California. She is a Red Bull BC One All Star, a member of the Underground Flow crew and BreakinMIA. As a seasoned performer and beautifully articulate choreographer, she’s taken breaking from street cyphers to packed out multi-tiered theatres, television screens and some of the most respected stages across the globe. Logistx loves articulating societal issues and her own emotions through dance pieces.

A big accomplishment in her breaking career came when she won the 2018 Silverback Open B-Girl solo competition. She also won the junior breaking Seven to Smoke battle at the 2019 Radikal Forze Jam. She has won the 2021 Red Bull BC One World Final. This year is her second appearance after 2019.

B-Girl World Finalists included Sidi (Greece), San Andrea (France), Madmax (Belgium), Paulina (Poland), Ami (Japan), Kastet (Russia), Yell (South Korea), Luma (Colombia), Ram (Japan), Carito (Argentina), Nadia (Russia), Ayumi (Japan), Fanny (France), Stefani (UK) and Vavi (Russia) who all took part in epic breaking battles for the prestigious world champion title. But it was B-Girl Logistx who dethroned two-time reigning Red Bull BC One World Champion, B-Girl Kastet from Russia. She defeated B-Girl Vavi, also from Russia, in the final to become the youngest b-girl winner to take the belt.
