When I was in elementary school, skipping rope during recess was the cool thing to do.
Unfortunately, my skills were more than a little lacking, so I was left out of all the fun. I could only jump with one short rope while all the other girls were mastering their double Dutch techniques. Try as I might, I just couldn’t get it down. That’s why I’m so jealous of what this amazing team can do.
During the 2016 World Rope Skipping Championships (yes, that exists) in Malmö, Sweden, these girls brought their best routines — and boy, are they impressive.
There’s no way I could ever do this.
Okay, I’ll be completely honest here. I had no idea that rope skipping championships were a thing. With that being said, these ladies completely slayed it. You go, girls!
