With 15 years of competitive jump rope experience, 2 world records, multiple World and European Jump Rope Championship wins and even a Cirque du Soleil membership, it's safe to say that no one is better at jumping rope than Adrienn Bánhegyi.
Then one question that the 33-year-old never thought she would have to answer so often is: “Are you making a living by jumping rope?” But the answer is: yes! Adrienn Bánhegyi is a Hungarian athlete, personal trainer, physical education teacher and lecturer, multiple World and European Champion in jumping rope, member of the Cirque du Soleil company and the proud holder of two world records. That is some list of accomplishments!
After 15 years of competitive jump rope, holding two world records and winning World and European Jump Rope Championships several times, Adrienn was selected to be an artist of Cirque du Soleil. Having performed in New York City and touring North America for a while, she was offered to accept a new challenge in 2011, to perform her solo skipping act in the most well-known TV studios across the United States and Canada, promoting their show, Quidam.
