The Quadruple Somersault

Miguel Vasquez, of the Flying Vasquez, one of the world’s most famous flying trapeze troupes,  catches “the most difficult acrobatic feat in the 20th century” – the quadruple somersault.

I love flying trapeze but what I love most about this video is that in slow-mo you can see two of the saltos just hover in the air defying gravity at the peak of the pass.

 

One thought on “The Quadruple Somersault

  1. Hero. At Circus Circus in Vegas, they had to cut holes in the ceiling so that he could perform his tricks without hitting it. I think they’re still there; talk about a bad-ass legacy.
