More About Kyle Maynard

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Kyle Maynard was born in 1986 with a rare disorder called congenital amputation. He has no forearms, shortened legs, and stands only four feet tall. Yet Kyle has learned to live a full and active life. Besides dealing with everyday challenges, he is an excellent student, has impeccable handwriting, and can type fifty words a minute. A competitor to the core, Kyle was determined to succeed as an athlete. Through hard work, the support of his family, and a coach who designed new wrestling moves like the "jawbreaker" and "buzz saw," Kyle became one of the top high school wrestlers in the state of Georgia. In 2005, he broke the world record in the modified bench press by lifting 360 pounds, three times his body weight. Kyle is the 2004 ESPY Award Winner (Best Athlete with a Disability) and a recipient of the President's Award for the Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame. He is currently a student at the University of Georgia.

Kyle Maynard was born in 1986.

No Excuses  May 28, 2008
This book is truly inspiring!
Read it, with a box of Kleenex tissue handy. This book will put iron in your spine!
Then buy copies for everyone in your family . . . and friends . . . and.
Do not! Repeat- Do not miss out on the rich blessing this book delivers.
Kyle Maynard "No Excuses"   Apr 11, 2008
It is a great book. It proves that the mind can overcome any physical disablilities.
Inspirational, well written, has helped me with my patients  Feb 2, 2008
Very great story. It's one thing to tell a kid that they can do anything they put their mind to when they're born with a body that's not "normal".

But it's another thing for a man like Kyle to SHOW people that it's possible. He's served as an inspiration to at least 2 of my patients and their families, because they can see the possibilities of life as an adult, defining and projecting who you are as a man, rather than letting society tell you who you are supposed to be.

Excellent read. Highly recommended.
Kyle Maynard  Jul 10, 2007
Kyle Maynard is such an inspiration. I have recommended this book to several people: a wrestling coach, a parent scared of giving birth to a congenital amputee, a girl with poor self-esteem. Kyle is an amazing young man and a blessing to humanity.
