Emotional Tony Hawk Breaks Down In Tears After Nailing Last Ever Trick

Tony Hawk will go down in history as the greatest skateboarders of all-time.

No doubt about that.

But at 52 years of age, he knows the end of his career is in sight and he's determined to take in every last moment of it.

Hawk recently took to social media to post a clip of himself attempting to land one final Ollie 540 - a move that he first nailed way back in 1989.

And since then, the trick has become synonymous with the skateboarding icon.

Wanting to pull off the legendary move just one last time before finally walking away from the sport, Hawk thought it would be appropriate to film the magic moment.

And as the footage suggests, he was clearly finding it hard to contain his emotions.

After finally landing the difficult trick after a few times of asking, Hawk slumped to his knees and broke down in tears as he was congratulated by the cameraman.

Clearly overwhelmed with emotion, he simply said: "I'm a little sad. I've never had much finality to anything but that was definitely the last one I'll ever do."

Even prior to nailing the Ollie 540, you could hear just how heavy Hawk was breathing during his practise runs.

There's something quite wholesome about seeing someone who's still so passionate about their craft however many years on.

But at the same time, it's gut-wrenching to witness his realisation that his decorated career is coming to an end.

Tony Hawk is undoubtedly the skateboarding GOAT and this raw video shows the kind of mindset he possesses that ultimately took him to the top.
