Footballer Juggles Soccer Balls On ‘Turkey’s Got Talent’
Helena started her audition off with just one soccer ball. She bounced it on her feet and her head at first, then kicked it between her knees, never letting it hit the floor. But that was only the beginning of her performance.
She then grabbed three soccer balls and proceeded to juggle them in the air, tossing them behind her back and kicking them up with her foot. She even spun one of the balls on her finger while she juggled two with her other hand.
Eventually, she upped her game and started juggling four balls at once. The Turkey’s Got Talent audience cheered, and several crew members from backstage crowded together to watch the performance. Helena ended her audition juggling five balls.
How Did Helena Polach Get Into Juggling?
One of the Turkey’s Got Talent judges asked Helena how she started the talent. She said she liked playing soccer as a kid, and her father suggested she should try juggling. Helena said she would practice five hours a day, and has been doing her act for 12 years.
Helena has performed her impressive juggling tricks in circuses and stage shows. As she posted on Instagram, she’s even gotten her daughter interested in juggling. Check out her amazing performance in the video above.
Helena also performs aerial routines with her partner, Michael Olivares. You can watch their performances, as well as Helena’s juggling, on her YouTube channel.
