A Norwegian man has been crowned the world's best disco dancer at the Disco Freestyle World Championship in Germany.
Øyvind Gulli vanquished Italy's Edoardo Ciolli, who has held the title for five unbroken years, by pulling off a series of daring, untested moves. 
"I had to do something new and something that no one expected," Gulli told The Local. "I had some new jumps and a little new choreography. It was difficult but it came off well." 
Gulli is the leading light among Norway's 1,000-odd competitive disco dancers, winning three of the country's 18 medals in the final, which took place on 15 September in Bochum, Germany.
