Legless Skateboarder Italo Romano Has Amazing Highlight Tape

Jake SilverSocial Media StaffJanuary 5, 2014

Twenty-six-year-old Brazilian skateboarder Italo Romano lost both of his legs as a teenager when he and his friends were playing a dangerous game on a moving train.

Did he let his physical limitations impact his athletic ability? Not by a long shot. As the highlight tape above shows, Romano can grind and flip with the best of them, all with impeccable flow and style.

Hat tip to Gary Laplante of Middle Easy for the find.
