Ramesh Khatri had both of his legs amputated after a building collapsed on top of him during the 2015 Nepal earthquake. Physical therapist Sunil Pokhrel and the rest of the Handicap International rehabilitation team helped him walk again.

Two years later and Ramesh is now training at the swimming pool in Kathmandu. He's won numerous medals (pictured above) from wheelchair and swimming competitions.
