This is Luke. He is Awesome on the Unicycle.
I've honestly never seen anything quite like this young Australian athlete riding on his one wheeled cycle.
It's kind of like a circus act collided with a skateboarding competition.
Contortion: An Unusual Art Form
Contortionism comes naturally to nobody; people are not born with the ability to bend their bodies in half.
In reality, some people are born with a little extra flexibility than others and those people can train to become contortionists.
In order to gain the flexibility needed, these individuals must put themselves through demanding and painful training.

The Making of the Perfect Ballet Shoes
I know very little about ballet; I was never a ballet dancer and have only seen the dance a few times in my entire life.
Even with my limited exposure to this dance form, I found this video fascinating!
Go ahead and learn something new today - watch this video about the importance of the perfect fitting shoe.

Who is Killian Martin Navarro?
He is known as a street freestyle skateboard rider, but I've never quite seen anything like this.
Killian started training at a gymnastics school when he was 10 years old.
Around 16, he began skateboarding.
Then he discovered Freestyle Skateboarding and began to merge his love for gymnastics and skating.
This Spanish skateboarder traveled to California when he was 21 and studied the tricks of the West Coast.
Now he has created his own unique style that is both technically challenging and inspiring.
You kind of have to see it to understand it. Check out this short video of Kllian in action.
