Lou Lou Skip To My Lou!
Don't be fooled, this rope skipping isn't child's play. Its fast, furious and involves tons of tricks. When a friend first saw the Jumping Jewels, he asked, "Eh what do the garden gnomes do ah?". LOL. I was like, dude, you have no idea how much you're underestimating them! The Jumping Jewels are hardly garden gnomes (although they are very brightly colour-coordinated with beanies), they can hardly stand still. They have so much energy you could bottle it and sell it to geriatrics for a fortune!
Jumping Jewels are made up of Rachel, 17, Kim Ing, 18, Wong Jye, 25, and Kim Swee, 24. They auditioned for the show together at the open auditions at Jurong Point.
Why did you guys join OMG!?
Because its fun, and its a chance for us to hang out and push the limits of rope-skipping.
How do you know each other?
We know each other from various skipping tournaments and competitions. Our coaches hooked us all up too.
So how long have you been skipping together?
We've been together for almost 5 years. We competed at the 3rd Asian Skipping Championships.
