Wow. I just got hooked on watching some guys running through the ‘urban furniture’, things like benches, walls, buildings…and the gaps between them!
I think they call it Parkour. You know the beginning scenes of Casino Royale where James Bond is chasing a guy through a construction site – that is Parkour. Absolutely stunning to watch.
Some of these guys (no women in their group) were amazing. They just looked like some elegant creature going about it’s normal daily life – a sort of cross between gazelle and big cat.
All in a graceful, powerful rhythm.
They bounced off things, up things and held themselves in the air for ages – just gobsmacking. They were clearly confident in what they were doing, but none of them were ‘bragging’ they all said it was about sharing the love.
None of them take drugs (hooray!) as they need to keep their bodies fit – and were these bodies really, REALLY FIT!
They looked like the highest trained Olympic Gymnast with that extra something. One of the guys (Mike) said he pretty much spent his life outside – not because he didn’t have a home to go to, but because he was getting addicted to his PlayStation and his mum took it away for
