First Lady Michelle Obama showed off another talent at a White House physical fitness and health event.
The physically fit First Lady demonstrated a certain flair with the Hula Hoop. Keeping the hula hoop going, and going and going, it was clear she had a certain expertise in that area.
However, that was not the case when it came to jumping double dutch and single rope.
The 45-year old first lady had nothing to be ashamed about, however. She knocked out the agility ladder drill like a running back prospect at a football combine, finishing an obstacle course that took her up a slightly uphill on the White House South Lawn.
All in all, a pretty respectable performance. If ABC should once again revive its celebrity sports challenge The Superstars, they might want to check to see if Mrs. Obama’s available.

The ASPCA will be handing out 10 Humane Awards on October 29, reports USA Today. Among the recipients are law-enforcement agents involved in the largest dog-fighting raid ever; a couple whose ranch is now a sanctuary to about 70 animals; and, of course, Nora the Piano-Playing Cat, the ASPCA’s 2009 Cat of the Year.
Wait, what? The mewing musician isn’t being rewarded for her mad musical skills (although she’s better at tickling the ivories than some of us here at Paw Nation), but for the way she’s raised the profile of shelter pets. You see, shelter pets aren’t just sad, furry faces waiting to be rescued. They’re animals with lovable personalities and talents, and Nora is proof. You just never know who’s going to steal your heart (and maybe the spotlight) at your local shelter or rescue!
