We got a lesson in some of those sports that many people don't know technically are sports. Hammer throwing 101. Reporter: A.G. Is a champion. It's more like a bowling ball on the wire.

Reporter: Next up, the trampoline. It's just jumping, right? A lot of people think, that is easy. I can do that. It's not your typical backyard trampoline. The ones we jump on are much more powerful.
