A heart for obstacles.
Loud applause resounds through the room. Unpretentiously, almost a little shyly, Amadei Weiland steps on to the stage to receive his prize. This is an unfamiliar picture if you know this young man from his YouTube videos. In them, the free running athlete from Berlin does multiple somersaults off walls, easily overcomes metre-high obstacles and generally appears to defy all the laws of gravity. Amadei Weiland has just won the 2013 “Laureus Media Award: Social Media” in the “Video” category.
