Colombian skydivers play real-life Quidditch during free-fall

By Ben Hooper

BOGOTA, May 9 (UPI) -- A group of skydivers in Colombia took Harry Potter fandom to new heights when they jumped out of a plane for a quick round of high-altitude Quidditch.

The fictional sport, which has become a ground-based real sport, involves wizards and witches flying on brooms, and the skydivers simulated the game by exchanging flight for free-fall.

The video, posted to YouTube by telecom firm ETB, shows the skydivers riding their brooms as they race to reach an inflatable quaffle, one of the balls used in Quidditch.

One of the players grabs hold of the quaffle and throws it through a hoop held by teammates, scoring points for his team.

The skydivers then deploy their parachutes and declare the exhibition over, with nary a golden snitch in sight.
