China, Kunming
December 02, 2019 at 19:01 GMT +00:00 · Published

Disabled war veteran with only one leg, Luo Xiangjian, demonstrated his impressive work out regime and basketball prowess at a gym in Kunming, China on Sunday.

Luo Xiangjian lost his right leg at the age of five after stepping on a bomb leftover from the Sino-Vietnam war. Despite this adversity, he performs daily workouts at the gym, followed by two hours of basketball training.

The war veteran hopes to inspire people with his story, saying ‚ "I think there are probably a lot of people like me, who feel that because they lost a leg or have a disability, so they can't enjoy the happiness of sports equally. But I want to go to the court and encourage them," adding ‚ "I especially hope that I can influence others by myself and spread positive energy."
