Red Bull Art of Motion Freerunner Pamela Forster Gets her Parkour on

From the moment her feet hit the pavement, Pamela Forster took the streets of Vienna by storm.


She joins the Red Bull Art of Motion competition every year to exercise her freerunning skills. Her talent has taken her around the world, doing stunts for movies and commercials. The sky is her limit.

Vienna’s first parkour training center Ape Academy, was the perfect playground. The founders Nico & Patrick live by their slogan: “Movement Matters.” With charm and know-how, they introduce both kids and adults to the craft, tricks and secrets of parkour.
