One-legged boy performs skateboard tricks after receiving prosthetic leg

This one-legged teenager who dreamed of becoming a skateboarding star can now finally perform tricks after receiving his first prosthetic leg.

Alrey Codilla Toring, 13, was born without a right foot and his lower leg was not properly formed due to a congenital defect.

He needed a crutch to walk and was teased by classmates who branded him ''disabled'' and bullied him by hiding his pens during his classes at his school in Iligan City, Philippines.

But after his mother walked out on the family last year, Alrey persuaded his father to let him have a skateboard.

Despite his dad's concerns about him being injured, Alrey was given a board and practiced by kneeling down and balancing with one leg.

He finally received a prosthetic limb in August, and now just two months later, the teenager can whizz around the ramps, grind rails, and jump down steps at his local skatepark.

Already has even won a local skating competition against other able-bodied youngsters, silencing the bullies and turning him into a hero in his hometown.

Alrey said: ''I only had my prosthetic leg in August, that's when I really started skating. My friends helped me learn. They told me I can be famous if I try harder. This is my talent.

''People used to tease me that I only have one leg, that I am disabled. My classmates also used to bully me, hide my pens, but not anymore.''
