Omar "RoxRite" Delgado Macias (born April 6, 1982) is an award-winning competitive b-boy from San Diego, California. As of August 2013, he has won 82 titles[5] including the UK B-Boy Championships (2005),[6] R16 (2009),[7] Red Bull BC One (2011)[8][9] and Freestyle Session (2013).[10][note 1]

RoxRite was born in Guadalajara, Mexico.[8] His family moved to the United States when he was six years old.[11] He was raised in Richmond, California[12] and was introduced to breaking in 1995 when he was 12 years old.[11] Although he was born in Mexico, RoxRite represents the U.S. in competition because the U.S. is where he was raised and where he learned breaking.[11]

RoxRite appeared in a documentary about breaking called Turn It Loose (2010)[11] and in an online reality series about breaking called Break'n Reality (2012).[8][9] In 2013, he was on the selection committee for the B-Boy Scholarship Fund sponsored by TheBBoySpot.com.[13] He is a member of four b-boy crews: Renegades, Squadron, Break Disciples, and Red Bull BC One All-Stars.[14][15]
