The video below tells the story of 5 time NPC bodybuilding champion Victor Konovalov.
Four years after being paralyzed in a motocross accident, Victor entered the gym at age 24. Ten years later, he won the first of five NPC national wheelchair championships. His most recent victory came in 2007 at age 45.
Here is a man whose entire life was turned upside down by a near fatal accident. He was understandably in a deep depression and even pondered suicide. He then found a new way to apply the passion that he once had for motocross. He found the gym and he’s never looked back. Victor’s accomplishments and abilities are impressive for anyone approaching age 50. The fact that he’s done what he’s done in a wheelchair is even more incredible.
