Dan Mancina, a blind skater
Becoming blind in recent years, Dan Mancina continues to skateboard and performs tricks, obstacle crossings and other ollies by using a white cane and a horn. Suffering from retinitis pigmentosa (RP), a genetic degenerative disease of the eye that is characterized by a gradual and gradual loss of vision, Dan Mancina knew from the age of 13 years that it would be, sooner or later, Totally blind. The loss of vision has mostly manifested itself over the last five years, with a total loss to the left eye, despite surgery, and almost zero vision (only a few shadows) to the eye law. However, Dan Mancina does not allow himself to be defeated and ensures to lead a life that is as close as possible to that which he had when he was still seeing. A fine example of courage and perseverance.
