“I can’t imagine what I would be doing if I had never started playing rugby.”

Those are the words of Lindsay Hilton, a Canadian rugby player from Halifax that has had to overcome more obstacles than most in her life.

Born missing full arms and legs, Hilton saw herself as “just like anybody else.”

Hilton, of course, is not just like everybody else; she’s far more inspirational.

A video of her crossfit training last year on Facebook went viral, getting over six million views. You can see why.

Hilton has played rugby on able-bodied teams all her life, eventually moving on to play at Mount Allison University. She now plays with the Halifax Tars Rugby Club.

Her story is told in this inspirational video produced by True Calling.
