Video of 7 year old Vova Galchenko practicing flips

Five years ago, I stumbled on a home video from Russia of a scrawny 7 year-old boy practicing flips in his living room to the Beatles’ song Yesterday. The low quality of early 90s video, the father patiently encouraging the boy from behind the camera, the cozy, cramped apartment, his sister’s little voice mangling the lyrics, and the young acrobat’s iron persistence were so enchanting.

A few years later, I discovered that the same Vova Galchenko, had become a world famous champion juggler. I am happy for Vova and amazed by the internet’s ability to record and share human trajectories, starting with unassuming flips on the sofa cushions.
