Tori Boggs (born Tori Boggs; 30 December 1992) is an American-born Professional Jump Rope Athlete. She is best known for being the most decorate female athlete in the sport of jump rope by winning multiple grand world championship titles and world records in the World Jump Rope Federation (WJRF) and International Jump Rope Federation (FISAC-IRSF), which have since formed the International Jump Rope Union (IJRU) as the sport pursues Olympic Games status.

Early life[edit]

Boggs grew up in Vienna, West Virginia, and attended Parkersburg High School where she graduated in 2011. She discovered the sport of jump rope when she was 5 years old and began internationally traveling for competitions and workshops when she was 11. Boggs has a background in soccer and running and also learned to play the piano and banjo during her youth. She created Jump Company USA, a non-profit jump rope program for youth in the local community, in 2006, and represented the program in most of her competitions[1][2][3].

Career[edit]

Competitive[edit]

Boggs won her first U.S. Grand National Championship titles when she was 9, breaking the Female World Record in 3 Minute Speed jumping by jumping 900 times during the U.S. Grand National Championships in Orlando, Florida. Continuing to pursue the sport, she made U.S. National Jump Rope Team to compete at the Junior World Championships in Tallebudgera, Australia in 2004. At this tournament, she won her first All-Around World Championship title. She was 11 years old. Two-years later, the biennial World Championships were held in Toronto, Canada. Boggs became the youngest competitor to win the Senior All-Around World Championship at this 2006 event. She defended this title for Team USA again in South Africa in 2008. She went on to set the Female Triple Unders World Record at the 2010 and 2012 World Championships before the tournaments were redesigned to be annually. Boggs was the U.S. National Jump Rope Team Captain at the 2010 and 2012 championships.

After a re-design of the sport in 2012, Boggs began competing for the US in the annual World Jump Rope Championships and Grand World Jump Rope Championships, the final qualification events. It was here that she won 30 Grand World Jump Rope Titles from 2011 to 2019 in events ranging from All-Around, Single Rope Freestyle, 30-Second Speed Spring, 3-Minute Speed, Triple Unders, and a few group events with different U.S. teams.

It was in this show where she played the character of Julie, performing a jump rope act and playing the banjo on stage.
