Okay, for all of you who think you know how to jump rope - you don't.

We don't care if you and your friends did double dutch every day on the playground from the time you were five.

You've nothing. Actually, we should qualify that - you've got nothing on Adrienn Banhegyi.

Cirque de Soleil performer and holder of two world records for jump roping, Adrienn has skills.

What sealed it for us is the :20 mark, when she starts jumping rope while sitting on the ground.

Adrienn jumped rope competively for 15 years, winning World and European championships several times.

She joined Cirque on a tour of New York City two and a half years ago, after auditioning in France and training in Montreal.

This video was made by filmmaker Devin Graham in Budapest, Hungary.
