Flying trapeze artist Han Ho Song from the National Circus of Pyongyang, North Korea pulling a Quintuple (5) somersault in Germany. :-0
(thanks to Adam for suggesting this one)
Here’s a lovely little fly number with 4 (four) catchers, including one on a rotating, swinging cradle.
Trad is rad. I sometimes forget the amazing things humans are capable of after a few (thousand) hours of practice.
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.
