"I'm 19, never touched a body of water in my life, recently I started going to the gym and I learned how to swim in a week, drank a lot of water, but in the end I swam. I know many will laugh because I learned at a late stage, but I'm proud and that's what matters."

Competing in the X Games alongside skateboarding legend Tony Hawk is just a bit intimidating. That's why 12-year-old Gui Khury knew he had to pull out all the stops not only to win the gold, but also to impress his idol.
There was no better way to do so than by pulling off a trick that no one — not even Hawk himself — had managed to land in competition!
They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure — especially when you have the skills and creativity to transform said trash into something way better than what it was originally intended for!
Prepare to be as impressed as we are when you see how these old, unwanted items gained a whole new purpose. Talk about imaginative!
