Nico Calabria is an incredibly inspirational young man. Born with just one leg, the 19 year old has triumphed over obvious adversity to play high level soccer at a Varsity level. But that's not all...
The video below highlights the dedication and hard work Nico had to put in to match his teammates. He isn’t there to make up the numbers, Nico can really play and that should serve as utter inspiration to anyone with a disability and those without.
On top of his footballing ability, Nico was also the first person to scale Mt. Kilimanjaro on crutches; not only that he was 13 at the time and raised over $100k for charity in the process.
It’s a powerful piece of advertising from Powerade, featuring a truly remarkable young man.
