Bodybuilding with Disabilities
After having been born with physical or mental disabilities or suffered a life-altering injury, a small but growing group of men with disabilities in the U.K. have begun taking on a sport reluctant to create space for their inclusion: bodybuilding. The Guardian profiles a few of the competitors, who discuss their road to bodybuilding, challenges faced by the disability community, and what they hope to see as the future of the sport.
