Rodney Mullen

Rodney Mullen was born on August 17th 1964 and is a famous skater for creating the flat-ground ollie, the kick-flip(which was originally called the magic flip), the heel-flip and the impossible. When he was 6 years old he was dosed with pigeon toe and had to wear leg braces until he was 9 year old. When he turned 10 his dad taught him how to skate, but his dad told him you have to wear pads and if you get injured you need to quit. Rodney agreed to his dad's rules and learned how to skate. He became pro when he was 14 he became a pro and is now 45 and is now still up and running. he competed against all pro skater's like Tony Hawk and Ryan Sheckler. and placed 4th. Here is a video of him skating, hope you enjoyed it and tune in for the next post :)
