A video posted to Instagram on Sunday by Norwegian sprinter Ezinne Okparaebo has caught the world’s attention — and will put anyone’s workout routine to shame. The slow-motion video demonstrates her incredible athletic prowess, as she crosses some 29 stadium steps in just five leaps. The 27-year old athlete has run 11.10 for the 100m, a national record in Norway, and made the Olympic 100m quarterfinals in 2008 and the semifinals in 2012. She is currently ranked No. 46 in the world in that discipline.

And it’s even inspired some other athletes, including U.S. Olympian Andrew Wheating, decathlon world record holder Ashton Eaton and Canadian heptathlete Brianne Theisen-Eaton to consider challenging Okparaebo with their own stadium-step leaps.
