Becoming a champion in your chosen field almost feels easy compared to what it takes to stay a champion. You’ve still got to hustle as much as you did before to practice and train, with the added weight of expectations. The star players of the UEFA Champions League somehow manage it, as you’ll see when checking out the new UEFA Champions League mode in FIFA 19.
So do Lasercorn and Cyrus “Glitch” Spencer, two champions from disparate fields: game streaming and dance. They recently came together to discuss the anatomy of a champion over FIFA 19. Lasercorn talks about how his time as part of Smosh Games leveled him up to maintain his champion-level performance as a professional streamer, while Cyrus breaks down how his experiences on So You Think You Can Dance help remain at the top of his game as a hip-hop dancer.
