Tony Hawk reveals ‘major setback’ after femur fracture

Skateboarder Tony Hawk thought he was on the mend after breaking his leg early this year, but the legend recently got some unexpected news about the injury.

Hawk first announced his femur fracture on Instagram on March 21, when he shared a video of himself at the same skating rink where the injury had been sustained two weeks earlier. The skater was already back on his board, albeit cautiously, and riding away from the scene of the proverbial crime.

Hawk announced at the time that he still planned to skate at the Legends Jam at the Pollen Weekend Jam in Vegas in May. “I am not defying the doctor’s orders by doing this, and I realize I may not be at 100% trick/power capacity by then,” he wrote in the caption.
