In another heartwarming story, a disabled man using a wheelchair performed the longest ramp jump and created a world record. Aaron Fotheringham was born with a mobility disorder called spina bifida. But that did not stop him from fulfilling his dreams of taking on extreme sports challenges. He fought his fate and created a wheelchair motocross to be a part of the sport, as per the Guinness World Records.

Even as a baby, Aaron could not walk but he quickly learned to use a baby walker and his crutches. He soon switched to a wheelchair and that's when he found something truly life-changing. Aaron was an adopted child among 5 others and he saw his elder brother, Brian, making a roar at the local skatepark. He was not just satisfied with watching his brother, he wanted to do it on his own.

He was also helped by Brian and their father, Steve. Aaron fell off a 4 feet (1.22-m) quarterpipe but he did not stop there. Since then, he has been to WCMX or wheelchair motocross (a sport where wheelchair athletes do tricks adapted from skateboarding). He has become better at it and has developed complex and refined tricks from "from carving and grinding to hand-planting and power-sliding", as per the Guinness World Record.
