PARCOURING??!!!?? world challenge.
« on: October 04, 2010, 06:37:19 AM »
Ok so to get so good youtube videos I have urban freeflow on my facebook. Well for the last few days I have been seeing videos and updates from an event which I swear is called the Parcouring world challenge. So not only is it competition which I know many people are against but they use Parkour as a verb.

I don't have time to find out anything about it I have to go to class but I thought you would want to know.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-3hBsqITP8 here is the link to the video that I saw.

This is the actual website

http://www.parcouring.com/index.php?id=2&L=0

Edit: I guess it is a little better because it is parcouring instead of Parkouring. I say this because it is misusing the french word parcours. Which as most of you know means course and was used by David Belle's friend to coin the term Parkour. That being said It may not be any better especially if you see the website.

Yeah, Parcouring is different to Parkour.

Parcouring is just people trying to go round an obstacle course as fast as possible. That's a correct use of the French word 'parcours', but anglicized in a new way.

Parkour is a complete discipline that uses obstacles to help you improve in lots of ways.

pretty sweet competition

for those that think of competition in parkour is bad, it only bad if you consumed with winning instead of having fun

At first I thought a kid might have made it. but looking at the website it seems pretty legit for someone to be that stupid.
