This Athlete Lost Her Arm, But Won't Stop Competing

Krystal Cantu, 24, of San Antonio, Texas, lost her right arm in a car accident. She had, at the time, been getting into CrossFit and loved it. Refinery 29 reports:

“I remember every single detail from that day. As soon as I saw my arm, the CrossFit competition was the first thing that ran through my mind,” Cantu tells us. “It killed me knowing I wouldn’t be able to compete, but I was so grateful to still have my life.”

So a month later, she was back at CrossFit. Two months after that, she was competing in the Working Wounded Games.

The unstoppable Cantu posts images and videos of her impressive strength on her Instagram account. Her right arm is gone, but her fighting spirit is not.
