Tony Hawk Can Still Execute A 900 At The Age Of 43 (Video)

It is awfully incredible to see a 41-year-old Mariano Rivera close out games for the Yankees, or a 41-year-old Dwayne Roloson stop pucks for the Tampa Bay Lightning and lead them to the Western Conference semi-finals, but perhaps the most impressive feat accomplished by an athlete in their 40s came from Linkoping, Sweden.  That was where skateboarding legend Tony Hawk was when he completed a “900” at the age of 43.

Hawk showed he still has it during a recent Tour in Sweden, as he completed the same trick that took him 11 attempts back in 1999 during the Summer X-Games.

The X-Games have been trying hard to gain popularity and attract greater audiences overseas, and Tony Hawk has been doing what he can to help them spread the love.  For those not already aware, he’s awfully good at that.

Here is a look at the “900.”
