Amazing Offbeat Video

By Federico Cornetto

 

This is the incredible moment a gymnast jumped through a hoop with a mid-air split.

Circus performer and gymnast Andrew Price, 30, from London, performed the spectacular feat on January 13.

As a hoop was thrown at him horizontally, Andrew jumped and performed a mid-air split – called a ‘straddle’ to get through it.

Andrew said: “This trick doesn’t have a name and it’s the first time ever done as far as we know.

“A lot of professional hoop divers that we showed it to have said the same.

“The one in the video was my third attempt.

“I asked whether we thought it would be possible to pass through the hoop in a straddle jump, so we tried it out and it turned out pretty cool.”
