Bullfighting is one of the most traditional and bloody sports of Spain. But there is another sport, not so well-known, but much more spectacular: Bull-leaping.
In Spanish it is called “recorte”, which literally means cutback. Great Big Story made another wonderful video about this crazy sport.
Bull-leapers invite charging bulls toward them in order to evade the animals via side-steps, flips and acrobatic turns. A panel of judges scores their moves. Unlike bullfighting, no harm is done to the animals. José Manuel Medina, a courageous bull-leaper, described it as an adrenaline-filled way of life.
