Top 5 Legendary Players who have Changed the Skating Game

Explore the remarkable journeys of Dhanush Babu, Sarvesh Amte, Tony Hawk, John Rodney Mullen, and Paul Martin Rodriguez Jr. Discover their contributions to the world of skating and their impact on the sport’s development. From speed skating to freestyle tricks, these skaters have left an indelible mark on skating history.

Any activity that includes moving along surfaces or ice while wearing skates or runners with blades is referred to as skating. Skating is still a relatively new activity, but it is gaining popularity among young people at a very rapid rate. Skating can be interpreted broadly to include both skateboarding and roller skating. The latter uses a board with wheels attached to the bottom of its surface to skate and execute tricks, as opposed to the former, which uses wheels attached to the bottom of shoes to glide around the surfaces. 

In this article, we will take a look at the top five skaters who have made a significant contribution to the development of the sport and to gaming history.

  • Dhanush Babu

In addition, he became the very first Indian to win a medal in international roller skating for India at the Asian Speed Skating Championship in 2016 and to place fifth in the track’s 500+D competition in 2019. Babu has managed to win more than 14 gold medals, 10 silver medals, and 5 bronze medals so far at the India National Championship, which is still a remarkable performance. He is recognised as one of India’s top skaters.

  • Sarvesh Amte 

Indian inline speed skater, inline hockey player, and inline slalom competitor Sarvesh Amte was born in Belgaum, Karnataka. Skating was first introduced to Amte in 2010.
