Paraplegic Lands First Ever, Epic Backflip on a Sit Ski!

It’s amazing how fragile the human body is at the same time, how powerful it can be. Josh Dueck suffered a horrible ski accident in 2004 while attempting a flip which broke his back and left him as a T11–full paraplegic. Despite his physical disability, Josh didn’t let it limit him from ever attempting a flip on the snow again, and he’s been working for the past 8 years towards one.

Finally on February 3, 2012, Josh made that dream come true and did the unimaginable–becoming the first person to perform a backflip on a snow in a Sit Ski! Which means, whatever excuse you have is invalid. Huge props dude!
