DANCER Tega Alex was crowned the best male soloist street dancer in the world.

Tega, of Fareham, has become the first adult male soloist to achieve first place over three consecutive years.

He successfully defended his title at the International Dance Organisation Hip Hop Championships in Bochum, Germany, which saw dancers from all over the world compete for titles in hip hop, electric boogie and break dance disciplines.

Tega is the creative director of dance school 220 Ent and was one of 25 dancers who represented England at the International Dance Organisation competition.

Gareth Smith, 37, of Cuthbert Road, Portsmouth, is the principal of the dance school. He said: ‘I’m extremely proud of Tega’s outstanding achievements, he is a true role model to everybody. His continued dominance in this category is a testament to his constant hunger to train and progress as an individual.’

Another member of 220 Ent, Ieesha Messiah, finished in fourth place in the adult female solo category.
