Brian Mainor Spreads Parkour Interest

Natalie Lott, Reporter

Brian Mainor a junior is known for one thing, Parkour. While there is not a current club at our school there is a growing number of participants. Parkour is the activity or sport of moving rapidly through an area, typically in an urban environment, negotiating obstacles by running, jumping, and climbing.

“I saw some people doing Parkour at a park one time and I thought it was really cool. I wanted to learn how to do the tricks so I started teaching myself,” Mainor said.

Since then Brian has converted his friend, junior Ryan Deleon, to the sport. Ryan shared a unique side to parkour.

“You’re trying to do the best you can do and keep pushing yourself to a higher standard,” Deleon said.

Ryan and Brian will keep pushing themselves and introducing others to parkour.

“You can try to attend classes, or go to a gymnastics place close by if you’re interested.” Mainor said.
