This guy is taking parkour to new levels, performing a series of stunts that better resemble gymnastics than your average free-running showcase. 

 

Having tried hand-to-hand combat, Thai boxing and football, Islam Kunakkulov decided to pursue a different sport – free-running

 

The twenty-two-year-old, from Russia, is now a bit of a parkour sensation, performing a variety of tricks and posting videos of his stunts on Instagram. 

 

One of his most impressive feats involves a running start, followed by a triple backflip off a particularly high wall. 

 

“I can’t say much about my free-running activities,” said Islam. 

 

“It’s hard to say why I am doing it and what goals I wish to achieve.

 

“I  am just enjoying doing it – feeling freedom when I run and jump.”

 

“There is some kind of a flight feeling when you are in the air but at the same time totally controlling your body,” he continued.
