Ruben Roldan is a rare kind of parkour practitioner: where most traceurs have two legs, he has only one. Yet he hasn’t let losing a leg in a tractor accident 12 years ago at the age of nine stop him from rising to the challenges of his chosen sport. In the nine years he has been doing parkour, he has performed at the most important theatres in Spain, appeared on Got Talent editions in Spain and Germany, and has been invited to train and demonstrate his skills at Keep the Flow and Urban Sessions in Brussels, Belgium and Oslomovement in Oslo, Norway. He enjoys overcoming not only the physical barriers, but also the mental ones. His feats motivate many and show that the only limits are those you impose on yourself.
