Four years ago, teenage gymnast Kate Foster lost her leg while battling childhood leukemia.
Then only 12 years old, Foster worried the amputation would prevent her from continuing on as a gymnast. She was devastated.
However, after receiving a prosthetic leg, Foster realized there was nothing getting in the way of her continuing her gymnastics career. During a recent appearance on "Good Morning America," she explained,
My coach said something to me that really changed my mindset. She said that she had never coached a one-legged gymnast before, but was willing to try if I was.
Now, Foster, 16, travels around the country as a gymnast, competing against able-bodied gymnasts -- and totally kills it. Kate's father, Ben Foster, boasts,
They don't change the rules for her….There is no category of competition that she doesn't participate in.
