One-Wheel Roller Mulls Life in the Fast Lane
Saint Louisian Leo White, aka the "One-Wheel Roller," has won more than 54 regional competitions since he began skating at age six. With his ability to slip into a low, stealthy, single-skate glide from a full-throttle roll, White is the skating equivalent of the drool-inducing basketball player who can charge down the court at Formula One speed, then stop, pop and bury a jumper from 15 feet in transition, writes Mike Seely of the Riverfront Times. This week, he's attending the World Championship of Performing Arts in Los Angeles. Whether he relocates to LA may be the million-dollar question for the One-Wheel Roller, whose niche is anything but sure-fire bankable, Seely says.
