National News

CHINA (KXAN) — A student in China was propelled to internet fame this week after he was determined to take part in his school’s demanding physical tests after losing one of his legs.

The student lost his right leg at the age of six after falling from the roof of his house.

He was given a waiver to sit out of a physical skills test, but he refused.

Instead, he joined his classmates in a series of sit-ups, pull-ups, volleyball, and even a one-thousand-meter run.

He was able to finish the race as his friends cheered him on and the video of his run went viral across China.
