Watch Paralyzed Skier Josh Dueck Land an Amazing Back-Flip

When aspiring professional skier, Josh Dueck broke his back in 2004 attempting a back-flip, he was left paralyzed but he didn’t let that stop him accomplishing his goal 8 years later. And as you’ll see in this inspiring video, he nailed a complicated move that is tough for even normal skiiers. 

By using a “sit ski,” Josh has been able to shred with his buddies like he did before his injury. But that wasn’t enough for this amazingly determined adrenaline junky. Josh decided it was time to attempt the trick that made him disabled.

So his friends built a ramp at Whistler in British Columbia so he could give the back-flip another try. This time he was successful, becoming an inspiration to skiers everywhere.
