An amputee who lost his legs ditched the wheelchair to become a PROFESSIONAL SKATEBOARDER. When Italo Romano from Curitiba, Brazil, lost his legs in a train accident he thought his life was over. But after discovering a natural talent for skateboarding he hasn’t looked back. Now a professional skater, the 27-year-old travels the world and regularly competes against able-bodied skateboarders, winning medals and acclamation wherever he goes.
