SEATTLE - Jumping roping is not just for kids, and Nat Jackson is living proof. Jackson is the fastest rump roper of his age. At 73-years-old, he set a new national jump rope speed record back in April on Steve Harvey's show "Forever Young."
Jackson is a motivational speaker, dubbed the "Jumprope King" by USA Jump Rope, and aims to inspire the importance of wellness and optimal conditioning through high-speed rope jumping.
