Freerun World Championships
Looking to fill that void now that the Olympics is done and dusted? Well have I got the championship for you! The Barclaycard World Freerun Championship is being held in London tomorrow night. 20 of the world's best freerunners (aka Freestyle Walkers... more at Wikipedia) will come together and be challenged to show off their skills and abilities in a specially constructed stage at the Roundhouse in Camden. I remember watching a documentary about freerunning way back when, and then it seeing it again in the awesome sequence at the beginning of the Casino Royale movie.
Check out a little promo video to get you excited about the championship...
Now, if I was ever pissed about missing out on tickets to one thing this year, it's definitely not the Madonna concert, so here's hoping there are some cameras at this thing!
*Something that got me even more excited, was the fact some of these guys are actually offering classes on it here.
