Unfortunately it’s not all reason to celebrate, with the edit prompted by a severe injury to 36-year-old’s knee a few months back, meaning he may never be able to skate again.

Here is what Paul had to say: “After severely injuring my knee a few months back and being uncertain if I could/would skate again, I decided to put together some clips from my time skating in Canberra since moving here 10 years ago. Hopefully ill be able to add to it again in the future as the mind is still willing. I just have to wait for the body to catch back up again.”

Featuring hammer after hammer from the days of baggy jeans right through to now, we definitely hope this isn’t the last the world of rollerblading has seen from Paul Wicke.

Good luck with your recovery Paul, we hope to see you on the roll again!
