Charly Iacono (Buenos Aires, 1990) is the 2016 Red Bull World Champion as well as one of the all-time legends in the history of freestyle football. He touched the glory in London after a whole life of effort, disappointments and struggle against himself.
Constantly reaching the podium and winning medals in various international competitions, Charly’s unique and acrobatic style has cemented his name as one of the all-time greats.
Iacono performs a fast, agile and flexible, a technique which made him a huge competitor. Even he developed his own favorite trick: Charly Calf Juggles. Since the Argentinian footballer won the World Title, his life experienced a U-turn, even if in his country it’s still tough making money with freestyle.
While he was walking towards success, the champ got over terrible episodes of anxiety attacks and panic. Thanks to a sports psychologist and a huge determination, Charly could escape from hell and became an icon in the sport.
