World's Greatest Hardcore Sitter Lands First Wheelchair Double Backflip

Extreme wheelchair athlete Aaron Fotheringham recently landed the world's first wheelchair double backflip at a skate park in Pennsylvania on August 26, 2010.

Fotheringham is a pioneer in what he has coined "hardcore sitting" (a sport with tricks adapted from skateboarding and BMX). Fotheringham is known to be the first person to perform a wheelchair backflip (at age 14), and now, 4 years later, a double backflip. Amazing stuff.

Here is a great short about this group of pioneering "hardcore sitters" produced by Explore.


I hung out with Aaron at the Let it roll event in venice and the kid is such an amazing spirit he was a true inspiration.

This video is inspiring !
