If ever there were some sort of cat athletic competition, a number of obvious categories would make sense.

For instance, it wouldn't be much of a surprise to see a tree climbing competition. The same could be said for a most-batted-birds-on-a-string or timed attempts to destroy a couch.

When it comes to a more refined competition that requires deliberate grace and motor skills, however, this cat would have a spot on the medal stand. Just try to find a cat that, repeatedly on command, does a perfect somersault.

Just give the gold to the black and white cat from Russia. At least, the YouTube title looks Russian. (The judges are probably Russian, right?) Either way, this cat has a gift. One so rare that you might even call it the cat of a generation.

OK, maybe that's getting carried away. But seriously, there should be a cat olympics. Followed by the Puppy Bowl. Just try to find a primetime lineup that can beat that.
