As a kid, Rajesh Durbal was told he may have to spend his life in a wheelchair. Instead, he turned into a super athlete.
"I was born with congenital deformities," Durbal said. "So I had (a) partially developed ankle on my right side, I had a couple toes on my left side. Basically, the doctor said, 'We need to amputate or he's gonna be in a wheelchair.'"
Despite losing both of his legs and having his right arm never fully develop, Durbal has gone on to do some incredible things, including climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
In 2010, he became the first triple amputee to complete the Hawaii Ironman World Championship. A year later, in the same race, he broke his own time record.
Durbal has competed on nearly every continent and has given motivational speeches to thousands. Through it all, he's never let what others view as obstacles stop him from moving forward.
"I always say, 'I'm a champion, I'm a warrior, there's nothing that's gonna ever stop me,'" Durbal said. "It helps everybody, they think I'm an inspiration, so OK. We'll go with it."
