Pogopalooza 10

Remember that pogo stick you had as a kid? Have a look at what you could have been doing with it. Athletes at Pogopalooza 10, the world championships of extreme pogo, broke a couple records over the weekend, including Most Consecutive Bounces on a Pogo Stick (taken by James Roumeliotis after 70,271 hops) and Highest Bounce on a Pogo Stick (awarded to Biff Hutchison for a massive 9-foot-7.5-inch leap). In the judged competition, Hutchison aced the Big Air and High Jump categories; Best Trick went to 20-year-old Dan Mahoney. While the fancy maneuvering was taking place, spectators wobbled around on pogo sticks in the free jump area.
