Champion jump roper puts your schoolyard skills to shame

(RNN) - It remains to be seen how their undefeated football team will fare this season, but Ohio State already has a champion jump roper on their campus.

Tori Boggs is an industrial design student on scholarship. Oh yeah, she's also a nine-time world jump rope champion, a two-time world record holder and captain of the U.S. National Jump Rope Team (Yep, now you know, there's a national jump rope team).

The school posted a video of Boggs showing off her acrobatic jumping skills, which include all sorts of body contortions most would be hard pressed to do without the rope.

If Olympic jump roping someday becomes a thing, we think we've found our gold medalist.
