Not just for bored little kids on the neighborhood block, the pastime has gone hardcore. See it live at the 2012 FISAC-IRSF World Rope Skipping Championships. International athletes as young as 12 will jump rope while tumbling, flipping and dancing — all the while making it look easy. The World Championships are a biannual event and contest categories include Single Rope and Double Dutch competition for individuals and teams. Australia, China, India, South Africa and Germany are a few of the countries that will be represented at this year’s championships. Spectators will get to see a special performance featuring Jungle Boogie, a group that was featured on Season 5 of MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew. The competition starts July 31 and ends Aug. 7. For those interested in attending, spectator passes can be purchased at the Sun Dome.
