The video below was recently sent my way. Talk about inspirational. These two athletes have overcome obstacles that most of us will never comprehend. It is truly amazing.
That was excellent. If you appreciate stuff like that, here are a couple more examples.
B-boy battle between Petit “Freez” Jeantao & Luca “Lazy Legz” Patuelli. Freez, as you can see, only has one leg.
Lazy Legz, ‘had a total of 16 surgeries on his legs and spine. When Luca was 8 he started growing scoliosis. At 13 he had a 60° curvature in his spine. This led him to have immediate surgery, where they fused eight of his vertebrae and inserted a titanium rod to straighten his spine.’ (paraphrased from his bio).
Bryan Gaynor, a young man w/ severe scoliosis, doing a pop & lock/robot routine.
Wow! Felt a bit sore this morning so I was preparing to grind through a session in some discomfort. After watching that, I had a word with myself!!
I like how they really incorporated the crutch and the lack of the two limbs into the performance. Instead of acting as a limitation, they were able to do some things that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.
Unbelievable. It truly is the mind that holds us back, much less so than the body.
