QUICK FACT: The Bicycle Kick
Category: The Beautiful Game
Did you know that Ramon Unzaga of Chile was the first player to perform a bicycle kick? It is a very difficult kick where a player throws his/her body in the air, while moving the legs in a scissor like motion, in order to kick the ball backwards over their head. Ramon first performed this kick in 1914 at El Morro Stadium in Talcahuano, Chile.
