Watch Death-Defying Skyscraper Parkour

Sports RealClearLife Staff

We’ve already given you a peek at death-defying parkour’s cousin free running, so this time around, we figured we’d go right to the source. If you’re unfamiliar with parkour, the sport has its origins in military training: it makes use of normal, everyday movements such as running, climbing, and jumping, but all with a heightened sense of athleticism and often danger. So if you want the parkour experience, next time you’re out for a jog in your neighborhood, you might decide to veer off onto the highway and jump up on the median, twirl around a utility pole, and leapfrog the cars lined up in traffic.

You could also just watch 25-year-old Serbian Oleg Cricket do stuff in that vein in the video below and call it a day.
