Who are they?
The young and very talented boys Mohammad Uzair 21, Muhammad Huzaifa 19 and Hamza Khan 16 are a part of Ultimate Velocity. These lads are basically indulged in a new kind of sport called Parkour. Parkour is basically a free –running game in which the runner keeps flipping over and bending while jumping through certain hurdles.
What is Parkour?
Parkour is principally an art of moving rapidly through an area, typically in an urban environment, negotiating obstacles by running, jumping, climbing and flipping over. Flipping off and over the obstacles, is essentially the basic rule of this game.
According to these young lads when asked, the benefit that they get through this sport is that it does not kill them but it only makes them stronger. They say that playing this sport teaches them to face their fears as well as to accept all those mental and physical challenges in life. This art probably makes them explore their surroundings, but in a more creative way, like no one has ever done before. Free running makes the boys think differently from others which is definitely what makes them unique.
The boys also told about the risks faced in this sport. They explained how they come across difficulties while training themselves on their own due to the absence of any training center or club for Parkour. These young men train themselves on the streets, parks and roads of Karachi looking out for their safety at the same time. In this esteemed struggle towards perfection these boys have also faced severe injuries like fractures and deep cuts etc.
The boys told that the main aim behind settling down with Parkour is to promote this sport in Pakistan and take it a step ahead.
They also declared that even if they are right now on the most basic level of Parkour, yet their major goal is to reach the extreme level of it in order to stand out.
