Takin' It To The Streets

Parkour is an extreme sport that focuses on increasing athlete's speed and agility while they vault, roll and jump through any "concrete adverse" environment. Enthusiasts to this method of conditioning are referred to as "traceurs". Now popular in the Palestinian Authority, traceurs are navigating the ruins within the controversially charged Gaza Strip. In a bid to up their game, they straddle real and perceived inherent dangers to hone their craft. Totally mind-blowing.
