The Secretive Globe : Underground Russian “Climbing” Group Reveals Itself Though Video
Reporter, Joann Flicht

They call themselves “climbers” which from their released video today (though dated 96‘), can be inferred to stand for a private assassination/secretive work status. They appear to be an organized network of former secret agents. From their exhibited gymnast-like skill, they most likely share a background with or are in fact connected with the sources for a story конспирацияо, a Russian conspiracy journal, ran shortly after the emergence of democratic Russia, and (hence the story‘s Olympic focus) the winter Olympics. The following is a reprint of that story:


Their story of grand proportions and international corruption comes to us from anonymous sources who formerly served as secret agents to the USSR. It dates back to the Cold War, a period of international tension between communist Soviet Union and the United States and either side's allies. What the world doesn’t know is that since this period, the Olympic Games and specifically the gymnastics trials have served as the equivalent of dog fighting between the countries’ intelligence agencies that were believed to have resolved their 60’s tensions.

According to the sources referenced, the CIA has for more than a century, through intimidation, bribery, and force, recruited the best gymnast’s from their country, and since the Cold War, from allied countries, to serve as secret intelligence agents. Their professional athletic status makes their physical condition, travel patterns, and economic independence inconspicuous.

Inevitably, the best gymnasts, those chosen by intelligence, would be expected, and therefore to remain unsuspicious, required, to compete in the Olympic games. Until the Cold War American gymnasts competed apolitically. With the world’s exponential intelligence growth surrounding the Cold War, the Soviet Union and other agencies learned America’s tactics and adopted them. Echelon, CSIS, BNB, Stasi, NZSIS, ASIO have done so periodically and to a lesser degree than the US and the Soviet Union. With each country well aware of the other countries’ tactics, the Olympic gymnastic games took on a strange and secret political nature.

If secret agents continued to compete in the Olympics, they would be red-flagged by other countries, as possible spies, and prone to assassination and failure in espionage. However, as long as gymnastics remained corrupt, this was inevitable, though in many cases, to preserve the secrecy of the most valuable agents, they would be “disappeared” by their country and no longer feign common citizenship. Competing gymnasts put themselves in serious danger and from then on were used only for assassination. Since the 60‘s many gymnasts have died unnaturally between Olympic games. If gymnasts refused to work for their country’s intelligence, they aided them nonetheless if they competed in the Olympics, as a buffer to the country’s actual spies. This latter trend has slowly and for the most part taken the sport back from, along with a decline in tensions between, intelligentsia. For the past 40 years however, the Olympics’ gymnastics trials have been glory and strength wars between the US and the Soviet Union and their allies. Allied countries’ gymnast teams, like the gifted Chinese, would often throw the competition for the benefit of democracy’s or communism’s pioneering country, the US and the Soviet Union.
- конспирацияо (January, 1991)


As mentioned, due to the decline in Cold War tensions (USSR’s decline and democratization) and the heavy losses suffered due to the Olympic games, no known country continues a steady gymnast recruitment system It appears that those akin to конспирацияо’s sources, those abandoned with the fall of the USSR, have released this information and their video for the purpose of removing themselves from danger. Their video, however revealed another intention: it profiles the skill of three former gymnast-agents and a phone call where a man gives the direction to assassinate a particular person not mentioned by name. It would seem that they wish to make their services privately available (the video ends with a nonsensical message guessed to be codified contact information). The “climbers’” video makes obvious (in a rather showy and dramatic fashion) their value in the art of assassination; in flight, they are simply impossible to follow, by anyone not of their like.

Their video was released through Google’s new video sharing service. Google continues to host the film at video.google.com... n+climbing.

Um, I'd hate to urinate on your corn flakes but the video just looks like another Parkour or 'free running' clip to me.

video.google.com...
www.parkour.com...

That guy's got some serious huevos though, you could easily break your neck doing crap like that!

The possibility Rheseus points out is likely. Parkour (which I believe is french for "How fast can you climb that ten story building?) Takes place in urban areas and makes for some seriously
public displays. Practicionars do seem to have a touch for the dramatic, and the production values seem to be similiar throughout the genre, as you'll see if you check out this link
One of the first popular parkour videos to crop up
That said, the story about the gymnasts is pretty bewildering and I wouldn't put it beyond the scope of our governments to pull it off, though maybe to a lesser extent. Also, the gymnasts featured in that video seem to be a little young for having been secret agents at the height of the cold war
