    Has anyone seen any free running?

    Free-running treats the urban landscape as an adult playground. It treats man-made structures as an obstacle course that participants negotiate by daring feats of graceful gymnastics.

    It's absolutley breathtaking...

    Video

    There was a programme on channel four recently called Jump Britain, which was awesome.

    Here's some more info.

    Sort of reminds me of that Nike ad with the chicken that was on the tele a few years back.

    You speak for me too. I am very fragile and can just manage to walk without cracking my ankles. What on Earth is one of the guys doing on the walk, breaking the laws of gravity or what ? Bloody aliens!

    It looks very spectacular, pretty inventive as well. I wonder why they haven't asked me yet.

    too me it looks like these people dream of wearing roller blades, but mum just won't buy them. So they have to make do by pretending they have a pair of imaginary blades.

    No, roller skates are for girls. Feet are where it's at. Can't you see smango, it's human nature at it's finest. Beautiful people using their bodies as a form of expression. It's like making love to a beautiful woman.
