WASHINGTON – Gone are the days when jumping on a trampoline was enough. A new extreme sport is intriguing people worldwide as they see these athletes master a “trampoline wall.”
The sport already has caught the attention of Reddit and The New York Times, reports Sports Grid.
The trampoline is already an Olympic sport, but the trampoline wall-style is more freestyle, as professional trampolinist Oli Lemieux describes it to the New York Times.
The participants who call themselves “bouncers” can reach 30-foot heights and experiment with acrobatics while returning to a platform during their performances.
