Every now and then we come across stories of people who inspire us with their ability to overcome disability. And this Brazilian man is one of them، according to "Press TV".

Italo Romano sadly lost his legs in a train accident when he was just eleven years old. But، he didn’t let that tragedy to stop him from pursuing his dream of becoming a professional skateboarder.
Today، the 27-year-old is rated among the top extreme sportsmen in his home country. What's more، he travels the world and regularly competes against able-bodied skateboarders، winning medals and acclamation wherever he goes.
