Here is another video from the 2008 World Championships. This is Robbie Csontos from the Heartbeats doing his freestyle for the Masters competition. Robbie placed 2nd in Freestyle and ranked 7th overall. This is nothing short of an amazing routine. This is a ridiculously difficult routine that is perfectly executed. The whole routine just looks smooth and flows from one trick to the next. Robbie seems to have a knack for making the insanely difficult look surprisingly easy. Those of us that struggle through these tricks are very jealous…
The videos are starting to pour in from the World Championships in South Africa. Here is a video sent to me by Zev Troxler from Worlds. This video is of Mathew, Garrot, and Collin from Hot Dog USA. This routine blew me away. It’s what I call a very “dense” routine. It has a ton of tricks and turner involvement all back to back. There are no wasted jumps in this routine. There were also several original tricks that were just fantastic to see. Great job guys!
Now that the 2008 US National Jump Rope Championships are behind us, it’s time to get pumped for the World Championships. They will take place in less than a month in Cape Town, South Africa from July 22nd-30th. To help us all prepare… here’s a cool story about the development of the sport of Jump Rope in South Africa.
Good luck to all of the competitors from around the world!
