Damien Walters is a British gymnast and stuntman. For several years he competed on the trampoline and was a world champion in 2003. Recently, Damien’s career has focused on stunt performance and he has appeared in several major motion films that include: Captain America, Kick-Ass and Sherlock Holmes.
Damian also has a passion for Parkour and Freerunning where he incorporates his gymnastic skills as well as his stuntman abilities. Parkour and Freerunning are obscure disciplines that focus on efficient running and jumping around, over and through obstacles. When an Olympic gymnast uses his creativity and interacts with buildings, cars, fences, etc a display of athleticism is produced that you don’t want to miss. If the following video doesn’t get you psyched to get up and move, check your pulse, you’re probably dead. Enjoy!
