    Before we start on the content, can you see where there should be at least one comma in your post?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I would say "runs" instead of "comes running". Perhaps:

    The person runs toward the things then vaults over them three in succession.

    (I can't remember what they're called right now.)

    A person runs towards the wall and puts his hands on the wall and crosses three wall in succession in upside down position (while touching them with his hands).

    Ems asked you to find a place for at least one comma. I'd like you also to consider whether a noun that follows a number greater than one is singular or plural.

    So where is the comma I suggested that you add?

    If it's a runner, then maybe you are talking about hurdles. Perhaps:

    The runner jumps over one hurdle after another until he/she reaches the finish line.

    (If they have to be walls then I am not sure what you are talking about.)
