This Soccer Player Can Do More With 1 Leg Than Most Can With 2

Are you ready to feel all the feelings?

Powerade produced a mini documentary chronicling the journey of Nico Calabria, 19, a member of the U.S. National Men's Amputee Soccer Team who has had more impressive sports highlights with one leg than most people have with two.

According to Mashable, the short video was scheduled for an April 10 screening at Kicking + Screening Soccer Film Festival in New York City. It shows the long road Calabria, who was born with only one leg, has traveled to overcome his disability and become a successful athlete.

This isn’t the first time he has found himself in the public eye. In 2012, a video of an impressive soccer goal he made while playing in high school went viral.

Back in 2007, he made an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to talk about how he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro at age 13 to raise money for kids in Africa who need wheelchairs.
