Parkour competitors harness the natural abilities of running, jumping and climbing to create a sport of artistic, fluid movements. Parkour is a possible candidate for inclusion in the 2028 Olympics and has its roots in military obstacle course training developed in early 20th century France. The sport is growing in popularity and the first-ever Parkour World Championships was held in Japan in October 2022. We introduce Izumi Hikari and Suzuki Tomoya, two world-class Japanese athletes, to outline the philosophy behind this unique discipline.
