We have all heard the phrase “Do not give up” very often, but sometimes it is a simple sentence that is not supported by any specific steps. The fate of young Chinese woman Jiang Hingyan has inspired many people with disabilities. Kian was deprived of his legs as a child, but it only gave him willpower and he was able to become a multiple champion in tournaments of different levels.
We were just amazed by this strong girl Jyan Honjyan and decided to share her amazing story with you.
Kyan is originally from Yunnan Province. When he was 4 years old, he had a terrible accident, as a result of which he fortunately survived, but he lost his legs. Her family was very poor and they could not afford to buy prostheses for her daughter.
At first, her parents hugged her, and then her grandfather, Kyan, paved a special way for her granddaughter to be able to move on her own. He cut the basketball and put it there, and in his hands he put two construction tools on which the girl could lean.
This picture of Jian caught the attention of many public and news sites. The journalists nicknamed the girl “basketball girl”. The child, like the other children, went to school, but it took him about an hour to get there, and it was only 7 minutes to get to school from home. But he did not give up, and it was these situations that strengthened his spirit. In 5 years, Kian has played about 8 basketball games.
In 2007, thanks to the support of the government, the girl managed to get a prosthesis, she has already taken her first steps.
2008 He paid close attention to the Paralympic Games, which had just been held in China. Then Kian started a new hobby – swimming, in fact he always dreamed of competing in these international competitions.
“I was sincerely jealous of my classmates. They ran and jumped after school, I unfortunately could not do that. “But I really like swimming, because I have the opportunity to be in the same water as they are,” Kian said in an interview.
Unfortunately, in 2012, Kian could not participate in the Paralympic Championships in London, but he did not give up and continued training again. In September 2013, the girl received her new prostheses.
He swam about 10,000 meters a day. Kian has participated in various competitions at local and international levels and has received numerous awards. And finally, in 2016, the girl received such a coveted invitation at the Rio de Janeiro Paralympics.
Then, unfortunately, he could not go on stage, but he was in the top ten. Kyan Honjian has not lost hope of competing in the next Paralympics, which will take place in 2020 in Tokyo. He is now 21 years old, continues to train and is seriously preparing for the next international competitions.
