Beating The Odds



Italo Romano from on Vimeo.

Usually the whole “impossible is nothing,” “live your dream,” “you can do anything” message is obscured by the spokespeople relaying the sentiment. Yes. Impossible is nothing if you’re a perfectly proportioned, gifted human like so many of the athletes hoping to inspire us (and nab some of endorsement our cash in the process). Italo Romano’s is a story that’s worth the emotional well-up.

A Brazilian skateboarder, Romano lost his legs in an accident when he was a teenager. Since, he’s beat all odds and become a master at a sport centered around one’s ability to use one’s lower body. Romano proves the benefits of perseverance and dedication in a glossless way that really makes us believe.
