Parkour - freerunning

Hi, for some reason I thought I'd share some Parkour, instead of talking about the trip I've enjoyed over the last weeks (the Alps are stunning!).

The first Freerun championships were held in London last week, and amazingly I found this out from my mum! There was an interview with a freerunner on Radio 4's Today show which really shows that the interest is now everywhere.

Here's the video that David Belle made for the BBC in 2002. I think he's the founder of the 'sport', I hope that it won't ruin how poetic the idea of breaking free from the 'street' really is.

By the way, I think Jackie Chan was the first 'free runner' :)
