Earned his fame by invading city streets, jumping among vehicles, over fences, and from one building to another. His name on a video title became enough to reach a crazy number of views on different platforms.

Thankfully, Red Bull was able to bring Titarenko to Egypt to present his first ever performance on its lands, in the city of Alexandria, along the corniche road, and amid the old-classical neighborhoods.   

The video starts with Titarenko’s arrival at Alexandria’s tram station to meet his Egyptian friend; who disappears searching for a ride for his foreign friend.

In an instant, Titarenko finds out that his luggage has been stolen where the ‘unusual pursuit on the streets of Alexandria’ begins, ending up with a mind-blowing astonishment.

The Egyptian authorities facilitated the process of shooting the video, by providing the required permits to come up with a befitting video to the majestic Egyptian lands along with the stellar athlete, as it’s expected that the video will have very high viewing rates due to global interest in the game, and in the events held in Egypt precisely.

About Parkour:

Raymond Belle, The French “inventor”, introduced parkour by the end of the 1990s. The World Freerunning and Parkour Federation was founded in 2007.
