Miracle is a boy.
It so happens that the star of a sport or show business automatically becomes a legend in life, which is then remembered and told to the descendants with admiration.
The name of the cyclist Dave Mirra will forever remain in the history of sports. Hard work, talent and luck – these are the components of success for a guy born in the small town of Chittenango in New York State on April 4, 1974.
As soon as the baby was four years old, his mother left the family, and Dave and his older brother Tim remained with their father.
Simple cycling along the alleys of his hometown soon turned into a passion. Since there were many enthusiastic about bicycles in the early 80s, Dave quickly found like-minded people. They spent time together, but did not lose it in vain – they improved their bikes, which undoubtedly contributed to the growth of skill. Continue reading
This person is still considered one of, and maybe the coolest climber. The most interesting thing is that he is not a professional athlete, but he does it more for pleasure. Passed many of the most difficult paths on the rocks, and also opened new ones.
This talent was born in California, in a city called Santa Cruz. This happened in 1981 on April 23rd. In his hometown was a climbing wall, a kind of simulator for climbers, which he began to walk at the age of 12. He immediately began to experience success in this sport, and by the age of 14 he had overtaken both peers and older children in his skills. This was immediately reflected in his first victory in the bouldering tournament. At that time, Chris was still 14 years old. After only a year, he managed to overcome the most difficult route in the USA (8c +), called Necessary Evil. Continue reading

Parents of the future conqueror of the deep sea engaged in ordinary work and were no different from the rest of the Egyptians. Ahmed himself could never think of his future calling. In early childhood, he loved, like all boys, to play war games, climb trees and swim in the sea.
At the age of eighteen, after graduation, the young man thought about entering the local military academy. He had been preparing for a serious physical test for several years. Having put his body and mind in order, the young man overcame all entrance exams and was enrolled in the course.

Alexey Alexandrovich Sobolev is an athlete of international level. He was repeatedly recognized as the champion of Russia. He took part in the Olympic Games, and also opened a snowboard school (online training).
Alex was born on the Kamchatka Peninsula in 1991. Alas, this place cannot be called his home, because a boy grew up in Novosibirsk.
As a child, Alex went in for skiing and was very interested in him. But once, in the city where the future star lived, the next snowboard championship began. Probably at that time Alexei was very worried because he had not missed a single minute of spectacular sight. It is known that then he was rooting for Dmitry Repnikov, who has been standing on the snowboard since he was seven years old. Continue reading
