Spectacular competition on the roofs of Santorini
Trauceur Luis Alkmim from Portugal performs a spectacular jump during the "Red Bull Art of Motion" competition held at Firostefani on Santorini island on Saturday 8 October 2011. Fifteen top parkour and freerunning athletes from around the world took part in the unique race at what has been dubbed the "most natural" parkour track in the world, awing spectators with impressive strides over the white roofs of the houses of Santorini built on the cliff's edge of the famed volcanic Caldera of the popular Greek island. The 15 trauceurs took on Firostefani, enshrined as the "parkour paradise", with breath-taking tricks to a backdrop of the most famous sunset in the world, overtaking natural obstacles such as curves, voids and walls and defying gravity, completing the 200-meter-long course within 90 seconds and putting their personal mark on the race. Red Bull Art of Motion was first introduced as a competition in 2007 and has since turned into a state-of-the-art event in the Free Running community.
