A 19-year-old disabled Congolese man in Johannesburg, South Africa, is just one-meter tall and weighs only 35 kilograms. However, he is taking the local bodybuilding world by storm.
Caleb Mutombo has a rare disability that causes his body to grow at a much slower rate than that of normal people. In fact, it stopped growing altogether when he was 14 years old.
However, this has not stopped him from taking up bodybuilding, and he is able to lift weights of 10 kilograms and squat with weights of 30 kilograms.
Caleb has taken part in local bodybuilding competitions and recently emerged third on one of them, beating rivals twice his size, weight and height.
He says he loves bodybuilding and is proud to have turned his disability into an ability to inspire others to take up the sport. He also hopes to become a fitness trainer and professional bodybuilder one day.
