The Bionic Olympian Meets A Little Girl Who Lost Her Hands And Feet

5-year-old Ellie May Challis lost her hands and lower legs to meningitis. She is the youngest person on the planet to be fitted with the same "flex-foot" prosthetics that South Africa's Oscar Pistorius used to become the first double amputee sprinter to compete in the Olympics.

Edit: These photos are actually a few years old and are bubbling up again because of Pistorius' unprecedented trip to the Olympics. Still very much worth seeing. (Thanks Brandon!)
