據美國《赫芬頓郵報》報導,美國23歲的殘疾青年亞倫•佛斯靈漢姆(Aaron Fotheringham)在自己的輪椅上完成高難度的連續兩次後空翻動作,外號「車輪」的他讓人們看到了他頑強的毅力。

亞倫患有脊柱分裂的先天疾病,因此他不得不依靠輪椅生活。但是他並沒有讓先天的缺陷打垮自己,他立志成為一位極限運動界的領軍人物。曾經一次劇烈的撞傷讓他失去了意識,心灰意冷的他想要放棄。然而最終他還是回到了極限運動的戰場,給人們帶來了一次次驚人的表演。

如今他已經在自行車越野賽和滑板界成名了。YouTube上關於他的影片有超過400萬的點擊率。亞倫表示自己做這些事的動力,就是希望自己能讓人們用更加積極的眼光來看待他們的輪椅,那麼他們就不會覺得輪椅阻礙了他們的行動,也能給殘疾人士多一點幫助並接納他們。

When Aaron "Wheelz" Fotheringham misses a landing and crashes, he asks himself one question: "Is this wheel life?"

The 21-year-old wheelchair motocross athlete has quite a sense of humor, which he showcases perfectly in the extreme video above.
Fotheringham, from Las Vegas, was born with spina bifida, according to his website. But he's never let his condition slow him down.

He's competed in BMX freestyle events, and he's also one of the star athletes at the action sports show Nitro Circus Live. He thrills fans with his double backflip, a move that he was the first to pull off amongst wheelchair athletes, according to the Telegraph.

"Aaron has a passion for what he does -- not only is it fun, but he wants to change the world's perception of people in wheelchairs," his website states, "as well as helping everyone see his/her own challenges in a new way."
