Gravity defying acrobat reaches for the sky in Norwegian wilderness

Norway, Trondheim
November 23, 2020 at 15:23 GMT +00:00 · Published

Thirty-year-old Norwegian acrobat Sondre Berg gained a massive following on social media performing stunning moves inspired by breakdance, yoga and parkour.

Berg showed off his skills in what is known as callisthenics in Trondheim on Sunday.

''Most of my combos are a combination of strength, balance, technique, and flexibility or mobility. So, behind most of the moves there are years of practice, just to be strong enough and mobile enough to be able to do the move,'' said the athlete.

Berg said he himself has been using social media to get some inspiration for his tricks.

"Whenever I see a cool movement, I would save it in my saved posts. I'd try it out and see if it works out. Sometimes I need to practice for months. Sometimes things just come to me when I am just sitting by myself and taking a walk or thinking about what I can do and suddenly things just pop up," said Berg.

The acrobat has been recently polishing some of his own moves, which can be seen in the footage.

Berg's mindblowing feats of flexibility and balance are also captured on videos available on his social media platforms including his YouTube channel @Sondre Berg and his Instagram handle @Sondre_berg.
