THE WORLD'S FIRST HUMAN LOOP THE LOOP

Stuntman and parkour runner Damien Walters has pulled off the world's first on-foot loop the loop. We've seen this done on skateboards, BMXs and occasionally even cars, but until now no one had managed to achieve it without some sort of wheel-based assistance. In order to achieve this impressive move, Walters collaborated with the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT in Boston for over four months, learning that he needed to be running at least 8.65 mph when he hit the top of the 10-foot loop.
