Behind B-Part: Philipp Boy

Like most top athletes, the charismatic gymnast Philipp Boy started his training as a child. As a german champion of multiple championships in junior and senior gymnastics, he has achieved numerous great successes. Philipp made his international breakthrough at the World Championships 2010 in Rotterdam: Here he won his first individual medal with the silver medal in the all-around and was also honored with the “Longines price of elegance”. At the 2011 European Championships in Berlin, his series of successes continued with a gold medal in the all-around and a silver medal on high-bar. In the same year, he became Vice World Champion in all-around for the second time in a row at the World Championships in Tokyo. By the end of 2012, he then ended his career at the age of 25 and counts still to one of the most successful gymnasts in german history.

Philipp remained active even after his gymnastics career. In 2016 he won the title in the RTL show “Dance Dance Dance” together with ski professional Benedikt Mayr. In 2018, Phillip proved his fighting spirit in the VOX show “Ewige Helden” where he also gave personal insights into his life as a professional athlete. He also frequently participates in TV show “Ninja Warrior”.

The latest challenge for the sports enthusiast and Berliner by choice is the position as sports ambassador for the urban quarter of the future: Urbane Mitte Am Gleisdreieck. Philipp is currently planning to design the sports park with a mix of CrossFit, Parkour, Calisthenics and “Ninja Warrior” elements. A home for amateur athletes and professionals, with a long-term plan to create a venue for competitions. As a connecting element between people from different cultures, sport can ensure tolerant coexistence and is, therefore, an integral part of the DNA of the Urbane Mitte Am Gleisdreieck.

“With the project B-Part, I am particularly pleased to be able to actively support a piece of Berlin in which sport plays an important role, especially as a Berliner of choice.”
