Human Roller Coaster: Stuntman Runs First-Known Loop-The-Loop

Damien Walters, a stuntman and parkour runner extraordinaire, is the first known person to run a loop-the-loop on foot.

He’s a trained stuntman and can do some incredible gymnastic movements that he applies to the often-treacherous discipline of parkour. Seems like imitators won’t be far behind, but dang, attempt at your own risk. Failing at this trick could really hurt. —Sean McCoy
