Tony Hawk recently made headlines when he broke his leg badly.
Even having $140 million in the bank doesn't save a person from encountering the daily problems that any human faces. Tony's most recent headline-grabbing moment wasn't because of a stunt or a new brand deal, but it was actually because the veteran rider badly broke his leg.
Taking to Instagram on Mar. 8, 2022, Tony revealed to fans that he badly broke his femur and that the injury would likely affect his future abilities to skateboard.
"Yesterday sucked," the star said. "I broke my elbow 20 years ago and managed to make a full comeback; this recovery for a broken femur will be much harder because of its severity (and my age). But I’m up for the challenge."
Tony also highlighted how ironic the timing of the accident was, as it occurred directly before HBO's Until the Wheels Fall Off was set to release. The documentary highlights how and why Tony has continued skateboarding into his 50s, something that he may now have to reevaluate as he recovers from this serious injury.
Despite the severity of the break, Tony is proving to fans once again how intrepid his spirit is, sharing videos on social media of him already walking and putting weight on his injured leg.
Our thoughts are with Tony and his family as they navigate this difficult medical situation.
