Every two years, the World Para Swimming Championships invite some of the most talented disabled athletes to show off their skills.
Each competitor has worked hard to get to where they are, including Guo Jincheng. He doesn’t have arms, but that hasn’t stopped him from being able to accomplish incredible feats.
Just last month, he competed in the men’s S5 50m freestyle. The competition was fierce, but Guo looked calm as he prepared to dive into the water.
Once he did, it was clear just how determined he was to secure his spot in first place. As the sports commentators noted, it’s absolutely breathtaking to see Guo glide so gracefully through the water.
While his competitors’ movements left trails of large splashes, Guo seemingly became one with the water. In a video capturing this competition, many of the commentors note how the water perfectly “coats” his head, barely disrupted by his movements. In the end, Guo not only won but set a new world record! Wow, talk about an unforgettable win!
