Aaron Evans is a natural-born athlete who can jump further and higher than most average humans. His signature move – jumping over cars moving towards him at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour.
Milwaukee-based Evans says he was just five years old when he discovered his talent for extreme jumps. He was watching a Bruce Lee movie when he saw the legendary martial artist run up a wall and do a backflip. Curious to see if he could pull off the same stunt, he went into the backyard and nailed it on his first try. He’s been pushing the limits of his incredible jumping abilities ever since, and today he holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest jump over three moving cars. That’s three vehicles coming at him at an average speed of 30 miles per hour. Most people would just jump out of the way, but not Aaron, he flips over them. “I pick a point as where I’m gonna meet it, and as soon as it gets there and I’m at a certain point, I get ready and take off,” the 25-year old acrobat tries to explain how he manages to clear the speeding obstacles every time. I just like to think of it as a real-life superpower.
Aaron Evans was featured on the History Channel’s hit show “Stan Lee’s Superhumans” where he back-flipped over two obstacles 15 feet and 8 inches apart, and over a stack of mats 7 feet 3 inches high. It’s true those are not exactly record numbers, but he’s ability to flip over speeding cars has less to do with height and length and more with spacial awareness and the craziness to even attempt it. “Just don’t think you can do it,” he says. “I mean, I don’t wanna put anyone down– everybody has they own abilities, and I just found mine, that’s it.”
