An athletic teen managed to skip rope while perfectly landing a backflip.

Porter Ballard, 16, from Rexburg, Idaho, is a skipping virtuoso capable of performing gymnastics flips while spinning the rope around his head and feet.

The student and athlete mesmerised people in his gym with perfectly executed jumps and turns.

Porter said: “I have been incorporating gymnastics and jump rope for about eight years.

“I love that new tricks can always be invented.”
