Jump rope and the meaning of life

I saw this story on the evening news and thought it was worth reposting in the blog.  There are seemingly endless numbers of jump rope videos on YouTube, including some fairly spectacular performances (try searching "double dutch"). 

The video features a group called The Firecrackers.  I initially posted one of their performances back in 2010 (it's a low-rez amateur video but still shows the moves).

This new video is better because it incorporates the backstory (which begins at 1:30).  This coach is a remarkable woman.

Reposted from 2015 to add this video of competitive Double Dutch:

  1. Dude, these teams all over the place. My 9 year old has been on a team here in NC for 2 years, and I'm dumbfounded by the things they do.
