    like Isinbaeva or Bubka, could these kids scheme to lower the WR by fractions at a time, frequently, to increase their marketability?

    Also, I imagine with constant practice, the "official" cups wear out, especially from the finish technique of slamming them down in the stack to conclude the routine, just prior to pressing the timer....lots of repeat sales of official cups to all these kids...what a racket!

    The benefits of hand/eye coordination seem to be touted in the case of former world champ Emily Fox with a basketball scholarship to Minnesota----
    has anyone done any studies on new incoming jet fighter pilots or benefits of skills learned from constant thumb movement on video games?

    This related videos is a slow mo. And even that looks jumpy.
    Amazing! On the slo-mo you can even spot one little missgrab not apparent on the real time.
    I don't know how they memorize the routine.. :? .

Apparently it is a mulit-million dollar industry with the stackmat timers and special cups with holes in the bottom to prevent vacuum sticking while stacking. Who knew?
    If my kids had the special hole-in-the-bottom cups they'd be extra sticky from doing double duty as beer bongs!

    How long has this been popular?

    I see from a related video on that page

    that there's even a "stackmat" timer that you must start/finish yourself? So it's a "popular" passtime for kids somewhere? (everywhere?)
