    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).

    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.
