Cracked-out Japanese jump roper has me scared, strangely aroused


"What in the..."

That was my initial reaction after seeing this clip from Japanese television of a girl who jumps rope 160 times in 30 seconds. That's her world record, says Japan Probe, though she only hits 143 jumps on the broadcast. 

Aside from the insane rate that her toe tips come off and back onto the floor, there's a couple of things of note here: First off, what's with the face of ecstasy? Does jumping rope feel that good?  At about :44 in the video, she looks as if she's coming to climax, fast-paced breathing included.

The other thing is how did she find out that she can do this? I mean, who sets a goal to jump rope that fast?  

One YouTube commenter sums it up best:

It doesn't really matter how fast you can jump rope if that's the face you're going to make.
