Video: Freestyle competitive skipping is a real sport. It’s badarse and has almost nothing in common with its schoolyard predecessor.

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.
