Red Bull sponsors Parkour

Recall the so-called Parkour World Championships in England? (VIDEO)

Now Red Bull is sponsoring competitions.

More than 4,000 people came out to Tampa’s historic Centro Ybor district to check out a truly unique parkour experience at Red Bull Art of Motion. …

During the first round of the competition, each competitor had 90 seconds to freestyle across the course showing off on and utilizing several different obstacles and features.

Yohann Leroux of Paris, France who claimed the title as the first ever U.S. Red Bull Art of Motion champion.

The Red Bull venue is far less interesting and challenging than the one set-up in England 2008.

I still don’t think free running lends itself to a competitive format. I’d much rather see the best doing chase scenes in Hollywood movies.
