The Incredible Flying Ruffino

Here's one of my all-time favorite photos from the US Gondola Nationals
in Stillwater, Minnesota. 
Funny enough - it's not a dramatic racing photo,
not a fun group shot, and not an image of someone receiving a medal.

This is a split-second image of a remarkable jump,
performed by Michael Angelo Ruffino.
He managed to do it while rowing,
and yes, he landed perfectly on the deck and kept on rowing.

Here's a close-up, just because, well, a shot like this deserves a close-up.
