12 year-old LOG-ROLLING sensation shows off her new skills

United States, Cumberland
July 9, 2020 at 11:58 GMT -00:00 · Published

12 year-old four-time world log rolling Champion Libby Magnone showed off her amazing skills in Cumberland, Wisconsin on Sunday.

The young girl from Wacounda, Illinois, discovered the sport after watching the Lumberjack World Championship log rolling competition in Cumberland.

She said once she was finally old enough she "tried it out and there was just an immediate spark” and she fell in love with the sport.

Libby explained her technique, "The trick to keeping my balance on the log is really just focusing in and not thinking about anything else. You just have to keep your core tight, look at your opponents feet to know where they are going to go next."

Libby, who also trains football, dance and running to keep her in top condition, has added juggling and hula hooping on top of the log onto her list of tricks.

Addressing future log rollers she said, "To anyone out there who wants to be a Champion all you have to do is work hard, always believe in yourself and just go after it."
