A woman born with abnormal hands and feet in China has wowed doctors with her progress. Despite being born with feet that face backwards, Wang Fang of Chongqing Province has defied the odds by leading a normal life, according to

Doctors initially feared that Wang would not be able to walk properly because of her condition. But the waitress, now in her 30s, says she doesn’t even see herself as disabled. Fang even says she can run faster than her friends

“I can run faster than most of my friends and have a regular job as a waitress in the family restaurant. There is no reason to class me as disabled,” she said.

The young lady, who has a son with normal feet, added: “I can walk as well as anyone else and even run faster than them. I’m like everyone else, except of course that I put my shoes on backwards.”

Wang is not the only person to overcome a rare disability and lead a normal life. Brazilian, Claudio Vieira de Oliveira became an inspirational public speaker despite being born with his head upside down. After doctors told his mother he would not survive, Claudio now receives speaking invitations from all over the world.
