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.
