Damien Walters, the real Spiderman

Posted on: October 23, 2009

Damien Walters, from Derby, United Kingdom has become a legend in the internet, and people have come to the point of calling him “the real Spiderman”. The gymnastic exploits of this fit Englishman of 27 years of age have millions of views on YouTube, and every year he uploads a new video with all his new tricks. Damien won the European Championships and got to be #4 in the world in a gymnastic’s discipline called tumbling, which involves performing a sequence of consecutive flips down a 25 metre long plyo track. He posted his first video on YouTube in 2006, in which he performed a combination of tumbling exercises, along with martial arts and free running. This video called the attention of Jackie Chan’s stunt agent, so he gave up on gymnastics and is now working as a stuntman, as part of a core group of stuntmen who work for Brad Allan, the first non-Asian member of Jackie Chan’s stunt team.
His moves are incredible. Enjoy.
