“How can a world champion feel – it’s the best feeling ever!,” said the super talented Josip, who also has shown his skills to the wider public by making the finals of Croatian TV show Supertalent.

Krnić first started breakdancing at the age of 9, when an uncle of his returned from Germany with breakdancing clips from the show Britain’s Got Talent, and he has been hooked ever since. Josip says that the world title has now given him confidence to kick on and achieve more success.
