This One-Armed CrossFit Athlete Is All The Sporting Inspiration You'll Ever Need
This is Krystal Cantu. She can lift a 210lb bar over her head.
Cantu is a 25-year-old athlete based in San Antonio, Texas.
Last year, she was in a car accident with her boyfriend, Daniel Cuate (pictured).
She survived the accident, but was told that she would need to have her arm amputated.
Cantu had started CrossFit a few months prior to her accident, and was due to compete in a CrossFit competition.
Incredibly, she was back at the gym just three weeks after the accident.
Exactly three months after the accident, Cantu competed in her first CrossFit competition, the 2013 Working Wounded Games.
Cantu continued to compete, even performing non-scaled movements.
While Cantu still has a day job in IT, she hopes to become a full-time CrossFit athlete.
"I may not have my right arm, but I have the highest spirits and the biggest heart."
