Ethiopian Tameru Zegeye was adopted by the church after being abandoned by his mother at an early age because of his disability. He began by crawling around like a snake but started trying to walk on his hands aged just seven. After years of practice he can now walk using sticks for up to 75 metres or down 50 steps. He had surgery age 15 to correct his leg deformity and can also walk upright for a short distance.
