    That is awesome.......considering that I am 48 and I am still waiting on the sideline to be picked to be on a basketball team in a high school gym class.

    I'm 46 and think they're nuts, but it's still pretty cool. And then I think back to my teens and early twenties, and thank God that sort of video media wasn't available then.!!!

    Nothing like starting my morning feeling more inadequate than ever :eek:

    Not that there was much I'd even want to try in the video but admire the fearlessness. Although, I think I've been down the steps on my stomach a few times in college when walking was a challenge ;)

    My butt puckered into itself on a few of those shots. The wheelchair flip was astounding. It boggles the mind to think of the practice sessions.

    In the interest of decency I'm not gonna post a video link. But if you liked the wheelchair flip and are curious as to how the wheelchair guy got the idea, go to youtube and search "free running fail". There is quite a bit of practice required.

    Uh uh, aint' gonna catch the fails, the successes are hard enough to watch.

    Gonna put this one on the big screen tonight. Some of the aerials are gut wrenching, but amazing in HD.
