Parkour, a type of urban gymnastics, is sweeping Europe and Australia. It developed in France and is really catching on. Guys leap between and from buildings, flip off of walls, and do handstands on railings, escalators, steps, or just about anything else. Some people are calling this a new sport. What do you think?
