As everyone knows, NBC has a vice grip on Olympic copyright. So, in order to show highlights from the games without fear of legal take-down, the Wall Street Journal got crafty as hell and made their OWN highlight real.
That pretzel stick. That World Record line. This is the stuff of legend, folks.
Behold: The Korbut Flip.
Named after Soviet gymnast Olga Korbut, the Korbut Flip involves standing on the high bar and performing a backflip, then regrasping the bar on the descent. The move was banned because it interrupts the rhythm created by swinging, but also because it's CRAZY DANGEROUS.
Warning: This video contains awesome, dangerous, and insanely badass gymnastics moves.
