Ladies, before you get too excited about pole dancing as a sport (next post down or CLICK) take a look at the young men practising the ancient Indian art of Mallakhamb, which translates to Pole Gymnastics. The YouTube video is The Topmost Mallakhamb Players vol.2, posted by the Sangam Institute of Indian Martial Arts (title link). The pole is greased, by the way, to avoid friction. Guys, to see a video of girls doing the Indian rope trick CLICK. The Olympic Games look really boring by comparison.
