Although we’re not quite sure how this woman lost her leg, we do know is that she’s still as determined as she was before she lost her leg. Hats off to her courage and determination!
On the 12th of September 2015 this woman, called Chen Yimei, would be participating and representing Sichuan at the National Paralympic Games! This 22 year old woman, despite losing a leg, has spent two years training to be an athlete. Yes that’s right.
Having studied at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chen, thanks to her willpower and determination joined to train as a professional athlete in December 2012. Although Chen had never received training before, she was the only one in her team to have started from scratch.
According to Chen learning how to jump with one leg was one the most unforgettable experiences of her life. Before using prosthesis to jump, her coach actually made her jump with one leg for about nine months. Chen’s training starts at 5:30 am in the morning until 6 pm in the evening.
Wow. If most people had determination and willpower like Chen, the world would have definitely been a better place to live in. Please share this post with your friends.
