[APK-News]Associated Press Parkour Article and Video

rssIcon.gif Associated Press Parkour Article and Video

Thanks to Sarah Skidmore for her insightful coverage of Parkour! She's written an article for Associated Press which is not sensationalist nor portrays parkour as a daredevil extreme sport. Charles Dharapak filmed the accompanying video in DC and did a good job of fairly portraying the difference between Parkour and Freerunning. Levi Meeuwenberg explained Freerunning to Charlie and this helped him discern between the two. Tyson Cecka did a few runs and some experimentation with a route which proved to be a nice demonstration of Parkour. Billy skipper Hughes talked about the possible dangers in Parkour and that taking risk is not what Parkour is about. Mark Toorock, as usual, just talks :P William Schultz was also there for the filming but didn't get much coverage this time. The video can be seen here (http://video.ap.org/v/Default.aspx?mk=en-ap g=10ed4512-47aa-4757-98fa-fe579d510198 p=ENAPus_ENAPus f=NVLAS t=s1179980883147fg=tool partner=en-ap) and will no doubt circulate, the article is already in 4 to 5 publications nationwide and will no doubt be widely published. Read more for the complete article.
