Philip Kim, aka B-Boy Phil Wizard, was crowned world champion at the 2022 WDSF Breaking World Championships. That triumph followed his runner-up finish at the 2021 World Championships. He went on to win another silver medal at the 2023 World Championships.

Just over a month later, Kim won gold at Santiago 2023, making him the first ever b-boy to be a Pan Am Games champion. That victory qualified him for breaking’s Olympic debut at Paris 2024.

Kim made history in January 2019 when he became the first Canadian to win the Undisputed World Series with his victory at the Undisputed V Masters in Morocco. That year, he was also the first Canadian to be invited to the Red Bull RC One World Finals.

In 2023, Kim won gold at the WDSF Pan American Championships. That came on the heels of back-to-back podium finishes in Breaking for Gold World Series events as he finished second in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil before winning the competition in Montpellier, France.
