This guy draws huge crowds at the skate park… with his wheelchair tricks

Aaron Fotheringham is just 23 and already making a name for himself in the sporting world thanks to his fearless attitude. At the skate park, you can find him mastering tricks and flips — all in a wheelchair. Fotheringham (aka ‘Wheelz’) was born with spina bifida and has been in a wheelchair since he can remember, but despite his disability, he’s been able to complete in extreme sports and compete professionally. He was just eight years old when he followed his brother to the local skate park, at 14 he landed the first-ever wheelchair back flip, and it’s been nothing but adrenaline since.
