This Jump Roping Video Is Much More Awesome Than You Might Think (Video)

adrienn banhegyi world's best jump roper

Most of the time, if you come across a YouTube video with the words “World’s Best” in the title, you’re in for some disappointment. There are a lot of delusional people out there with video cameras and access to the internet, and they post a lot of dumb videos. However, when I came across this video purporting to feature the “World’s Best Jump Roper,” I just had to see what it was all about.

Turns out, these people weren’t lying. In the video is a Hungarian woman named Adrienn Banhegyi, and she really does hold two world records for jumping rope and has won numerous World and European Jump Rope Championships—because yes, apparently there is such a thing. After 15 years of competitive jump roping, Adrienn embarked on a performance career with Cirque du Soleil that has taken her around the globe. However, she’s still really, really, really good at jumping rope.

And here’s a bonus: she’s also hot.

Here’s the video:

And here is another video that goes into her background in competitive jump roping:

So there you go. Unless you can provide evidence to the contrary, I’m going to go ahead and say Adrienn Banhegyi really is the world’s greatest jump roper. Cool?
