Video: Parkour sweeps Russia

Young Russians take to jumping, diving and rolling as a unique sport takes roots.



    Parkour, a sport where you jump, dive, roll and swing off rooftops, stairs, walls and anything else the urban environment has to offer, has taken off in Russia.

    The activity, which began in France, is being taken very seriously by the youth in Russia, who believe it is not just a way of getting fit, but a social movement too.
