Local hero Dimitris Kyrsanidis (GRE) seized victory at Red Bull Art of Motion 2014 by beating 17 of the world’s best freerunning athletes on Santorini’s urban track. Pavel Petkuns (LAT) came second and Alexander Baiturin (RUS) finished third to grab the two remaining podium spots.
It was a winning run full of creative tricks and fluid movements
from Kyrsanidis who gave a world-class performance above the whitewashed
stone roofs of Santorini to impress the judges. A crowd of 1,500
spectators celebrated the 19-year-old winning the fourth edition of
freerunning’s most celebrated title. The shock result saw two-time
champion Pavel Petkuns pushed into second place.
