The Sport of Camel Jumping

(Video Link)

If you're in the Zaraniq tribe of Yemen and you want to show off, jump over a camel. Or better yet, three camels at the same time. According to a tribal legend, the practice began generations ago as a dare between two men. Now it's a sport of demanding athleticism.

It looks like the first camel's saddle is six feet above the ground and the last jumper's center of gravity cleared it by three feet. That is a full foot over the world's record! Someone needs to teach these guys the Fosbury Flop.
