Parkour... Free Running

Can you believe that these are humans who's performing such actions... this would be the feeling you will have when you see traceurs ( the term used for people who are performing parkour ) in action... though its been there for many years, i came to know about it from the movie CASINO ROYALE, in the first chase bond makes to catch hold of a person in Africa.. the way they run, jump, drift, bend, you cant even think they will survive.. but people do that at amazing ease... there are lot of videos available in youtube showing free running and parkour.. both these are different types of performances... they are not categorized as a sport.. just imagine if they get into olympics or any national athletics event.. they will easily walk away with all the medals... recently this was used in a tamil movie "Dham Dhoom" where jayam ravi will run for his life in Russia.. we also need to appreciate the camera work which shows us this excellent action... this is another adrenaline , adventurous , riskier activity for people who want to kiss their death... :-)
