48-year-old skateboarder Tony Hawk “for the last time” repeated a 900-degree turn

17 years after Tony Hawk completed his first turn 900 degrees in the air, the skateboarder repeated it again. In his own words, it is likely that he managed to do this for the last time in his life. In May, Hawke turned 48 years old.
