He’s travelled to 30 US states and has been to 16 countries across 5 continents.
I could probably fill an entire podcast episode simply on the accolades of these two jumpers! But instead I asked them about many of those accolades, discussing things such as the history of jump rope, the best methods for growth of our sport, the importance of biomechanics and training like an athlete, how these two met and ultimately got married, and a whole lot more. You do not want to miss this one!
