Artis Thompson III, who lost his leg in a motorcycle accident, shocked the world when he first appeared on “American Ninja Warrior” last year and showed us all what hard work and determination can accomplish. This year, the incredible athlete is back in action and more prepared than ever before.
On Wednesday, the one-legged athlete did something on American Ninja Warrior you have to see to believe. If you’re not familiar with the show, American Ninja Warrior is an agility and obstacle based competition that would challenge the most prolific athlete.
The athletic spectacle of Thompson’s attempt had everyone in the crowd on the edge of their seat, but mostly on their feet… and even in tears!
Amazingly, Thomson fought his way through three obstacles not only with his prosthetic leg, but a partially torn ACL in his other knee. His effort is super-human. The crowds standing ovation says it all.
Share Thomson’s incredible moment of triumph today. Anyone got chills!?
Simply amazing. Artis Thompson III is an inspiration.
