Bouncing Bulldogs on CBS Evening News

The Bouncing Bulldogs appeared on the CBS Evening News this week. The Bulldogs will compete this Sunday (Dec. 2nd) in the Double Dutch Holiday Classic at the world famous Apollo Theater in NYC. The stars of the documentary Doubletime will go up against some of the toughest double dutch teams from around the world. The highlight of the competition is the Fusion event that we’ve seen explode in popularity over the last few years. The Bulldogs’ primary goal is to take the title back from the Japanese teams that have dominated the event 9 out of the last 11 years. Regardless of who wins, it will be an amazing show and an awesome display of talent.

Good luck jumpers!

2007 USA Jump Rope National Championship Results

The 2007 USA Jump Rope National Championship results have been posted to the USA Jump Rope website.

If I read the results correctly, it looks like Tori Boggs went home with a lot of new hardware to put on display. She won the Female Triple Unders, Female Single Rope Speed, Female Three Minute Speed, and Female Single Rope Freestyle events. That basically amounts to a sweep of the individual single rope events which is absolutely amazing! She is clearly one of the top athletes our sport has ever seen.

Here is some video from a team that made it “on Stage” at Nationals. This is an all male team from Hot Dog USA performing their Double Dutch Pairs Freestyle on stage during the Grand National Championship. This is a great routine with some very innovative tricks. The Double Leap Frog that they start the routine with is a really cool trick. This routine was good enough to earn them 2nd place, which is an amazing accomplishment in today’s hyper-competitive field.
