In 2008, 18 year old Dai Guohong lost his legs in the horrible Wenchuan earthquake. But rather than mentally check out he rose above his physical restraints to become one of China’s top swimmers.
A local disabled sports coach encouraged Dai to join as a paralympics swimmer in Sichuan Province. Dai spent up to 6 hours in the swimming pool every day.
After training for 2 months, he participated in the National Disabled Swimming Championships and placed third in 100 meters backstroke.
Coach expects Dai to take part in the Paralympics 2012 that will be held in London.
Dai Guohong uses prostheses in his everday life.
He also likes to spend time with his girlfriend and father.
Forgot to read above, edited, signature much? Oh well will delete it, too confusing for the Average Chiver
- the one not racist at all
Now I'm curious… can you whisper it softly into my ear? I'll compensate with a foot rub. Trolls love foot rubs.
how would like it if a tadpole ripped your legs off paula_ think about that u monkey piss pot
I have no legs. I have no legs. I have no legs. I have no legs. May God bless you. I have no legs.
Human endeavour, there's nothing like it.
Some people are awesome. end of story.
that's one tough kid,May he have a Long life and Success
Just as rad.
I need this guy's motivation… Awesome.
Entirely inspiring and humbling.
Those metal legs are fuckin' dope. As soon as cyborg implants become legit, sign me up.
I love this picture because it tells a deep story where there is pain and sorrow, yet he is triumphant in his battles where he conquered swimming and became one of the best! Kudos buddy! You are #1
You are an idiot.
Yes great picture! true inspiration
You can cut a man down but you still can't take away his dreams. It's like they say " what doesn't break you, makes you stronger ".
Did he look under the couch cushions?
The only real problem in my life is that I cannot thumb this up more.
How tall is he?
Urgh.. I do not come to theChive for this.
How about if it was a hot chick with no legs? Then would you think otherwise? Perhaps bet the meat with a slight hesitation (like if one were to jerk off on his moms bed simply because she has a TV in her room and ones father is hogging the only other television?)
if it was a hot girl with no legs…she couldnt run away lol sorry bad joke i know x.x
You Sir are a bag of douche!!!
meant for BFF
i had the pleasure of photographing (and hanging out) the Paralympics Ireland tem when they came to Portugal… Now that's inspiring… I was amazed by their strength and spirit.
Cool story bro….nobody cares.
so let me get this straight. battlefield 3 is out?

Awesome paralympian is awesome
He sure just stepped up and got a leg ahead of us all. Bravo and bon apetit!
Both legs lost…..and still not a single fuck given!! awesome stuff bro!!
Every time I feel unmotivated and don't want to get out of bed or do anything constructive, I find articles like this one. Articles where someone was delivered a double-decker shit sandwich by life and made the most of it, living their lives as a testament to the unbreakable human will and inner strength.
Then I REALLY feel like shit.
#8 A man with no legs helps a man with no arms. Impressive sir. A reminder that there is still lots and lots of good people on our little rock.
All I can think of is "you complete me".
Fuckin a. If there's a will, there's a way
So awesome!! This dude, among many others I'm sure, is amazing.
#3 & #9, reverse lever and butterfly… that takes some strength to perform without any handicaps. He's an amazing instance of human perseverance and mental fortitude. Best of luck in the 2012 paralympics!
