Gus Kenworthy Doing a Backflip Into a Pool Is Going to Freak You Out

Gus Kenworthy is athletic … duh. He’s an Olympian. But even the most skilled among us can potentially wipe out.

Kenworthy and fellow Olympic “it boy” Adam Rippon were doing a cover photo shoot for Out Magazine at a pool in Los Angeles (because we’ve been good this year and we deserve it.)

However, things almost went south when Kenworthy did a gravity-defying backflip into the pool and barely clears the pavement before hitting the water.

Praise whatever it is that y’all praise because he stuck the landing.

Editors note: don’t try this, you will probably not stick the landing.
