They say the best athletes are the ones who make it look effortless. They're talking about DDDD (the Dynamic Diplomats of Double Dutch) or any one of the other couple of hundred girls who sweat it out between the ropes for one of the city's countless teams. This ain't no sport for looking pretty. Whether it's the speed trials or the fusion routines or any other move, double dutch is all about getting it right as you race the clock.
