Young AFL star’s insane gym exploits

Supremely talented Richmond youngster Shai Bolton continues to mesmerise with his abilities. This time, however, it wasn’t on the footy field.

Bolton showed off his talents on the field as he played a key role in helping Richmond secure their third flag in four years.

Now the 22-year-old is melting minds in the gym with Geelong’s Quinton Narkle uploading a video displaying his insane bounce.

With a bit of a run up, Bolton launches himself skyward towards a box jump that has been set up.

Set up at an incredible 60 inches (152.4cm), Bolton clearly surprises himself with the insanely impressive feat. He even had to duck down to ensure his head didn’t hit the ceiling.

Patrick Dangerfield sent the AFL world wild earlier in the year when he showed off his athletic prowess by completing a 57 inch box jump.

Unfortunately the superstar Cat was surpassed by GWS Giants youngster Isaac Cumming, who climbed a tower set at 59 inches.
