Katherine Beattie First Female Ever To Do A Wheel Chair Backflip - Insane!
Thursday, April 7, 2016
You probably saw our post today about rad girls Katherine Beattie and Jamey Perry who we met by chance, at Venice Skatepark yesterday. Well, check out Katherine is this video from Woodward West and see what they have to say about this rad athlete.
Via Woodward West:
Katherine Beattie is an adaptive sports athlete for Box Wheel Chairs and WCMX. Katherine suffers from Spastic Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy, also known as Spastic Tetraplegia, that affects all four limbs (both arms and legs). This does not stop Katherine's determination to come back to Woodward West and take another chance at being the first-ever female WCMX athlete to land the coveted and sought after backflip on her wheelchair. Using Woodward West signature foam pits and Resi she will be able to see it and feel it come to life. Will she make it? Check it out as she hucks her flip at one of the only places capable of making her dream come true.
Stay tuned here on the GN4LW site as we plan to do an interview with both Katherine and Jayme in the very near future!
