How The Hell Does Anyone Get This Good At Skipping?

How the Hell Does Anyone Get This Good at Jump Rope?

Video: Freestyle competitive skipping is a real sport. It's badarse and has almost nothing in common with its schoolyard predecessor. Let that sink in. And then feast your eyes on Nick Woodard — one of the sport's luminaries and multiple-time world champions — as he performs a routine that involves standing back flips, corkscrews and hand stands. It's like your childhood had a baby with gymnastics and breakdancing, and that baby is wearing sunglasses and offering cigarettes to other babies.
