Disabled people are showing the world every day that nothing is impossible. This is footage of the first test flight of a wheelchair paragliding apparatus in Norway. Amun Røstøen Løvland Vennesla and his students developed the chair to make the sport more accessible for people who use a wheelchair. The test flight went safely until it took a small tumble after landing. Hopefully, the device will eventually be able to be used safely with more testing and development.

Even Yusuke cancels the jump two times before this pro mountain biker works up the courage (and a little recklessness) to dare it. Does that mean it's the "Yusake Yamamoto Train Gap" now? View Now
