These Hidden Cameras Remind Us To Look Past Appearances

These athletes are absolutely mind-blowing.

In September 2016 (the seventh through the 18th), the Paralympics will be held in Rio de Janeiro.

Organizers decided to place hidden cameras in gyms throughout the area, and then they asked a few professional athletes who are competing next year to work out: Luciani Dantas (who has dwarfism), Lucia Teixiera (who is visually impaired), and Vinicius Rodrigues (who is an amputee).

At first, the gym patrons around them were skeptical and didn’t expect much out of these three incredible athletes. But then they see them in action.

Suffice to say, these tough cookies absolutely stunned the people around them with what they could do.

This video serves as an important reminder: don’t judge a book by its cover, and don’t make assumptions about what someone can or can’t do based on their appearances.
