Meet Kerala amputee marathoner who does not let disability limit him


Sajesh MV, an amputee marathoner took part in a 10-km run in a charity event in Kerala recently.

Sajesh's left leg was cut off below the knee after an accident in 2005.

He was motivated to take part in marathons after getting to know about all-India group of amputees called Challenging Ones.

He is now set to receive a blade that will help him to run marathons faster without worrying about the damage to his artificial leg.

He hopes to make his debut as a blade runner in marathons in Goa or Mangaluru or the Spice Coast marathon in Kochi next month and at Indian Naval Academy, in December.
