Video: One-legged teen from Colombia shows off BMX skills
Julian David Molina's application and perseverance have won him a worldwide following
Here’s a BMX video that caught our attention – Julián David Molina, a one-legged teenager from Colombia, showing what is possible on a bike with application and perseverance.
The video was posted to his Facebook page last week, and we’re assuming that the catalogue of spills early on in the clip is designed to highlight exactly those qualities.
Molina’s exploits have gained him a big following worldwide – he has nearly 10,000 fans on Facebook, among them, Danny MacAskill – and last year he was the subject of a 15-minute documentary in Spanish, posted to Vimeo, under the title Este cuerpo nunca se rinde – which translates as This body never surrenders.
The appreciation he has earned for his skills also saw US brand Premium donate a bike to him last year.
