Jozef Wadecki, super tumbler and Internet sensation

Fourth-Place Medal

A gymnastics video has been making the rounds of Jozef Wadecki, a Polish gymnast who is known for his explosive tumbling skills. How explosive? Take a look for yourself.

In his first tumbling run, Wadecki performs a front flip off of the springboard, followed by a whipback (a no-handed back handspring), back handspring, triple twist, whipback, back handspring, triple twist. He follows that up with a round-off right into a double layout, whipback, back handspring double layout, whipback, whipback, double back with a full twist. Phew. That sort of difficulty is unheard of.

Not only does he get unbelievable height, Wadecki has nearly perfect form. His legs are straight, toes are pointed, and he doesn't deviate from the center line down the middle of the tumbling mat.

*An earlier version of the post identified the tumbler as Leszek Blanik. We apologize for the error.
