Nick overcame several challenges in his life, including the fact that he was born without any limbs. His struggle began shortly after his birth when his own mother declined to see or embrace the limbless baby, however she eventually accepted him claiming that God had a plan for him.

He was bullied at school to the point that he was afraid for his life since he saw no point in it. His emotions of powerlessness and loneliness drove him to attempt suicide by drowning in the bathtub when he was just ten years old.

Nick, on the other hand, always maintained an upbeat attitude, which enabled him to overcome struggles, discover essential concepts, define his goal and transform problems into opportunities. In high school, things became a whole lot better. Nick was selected as the captain of his school (MacGregor State School).

When he was 13, he injured his foot, which he used for swimming and writing, and it became a pivotal moment for the young lad who had struggled with loneliness for years. This incident taught him to be grateful for his strengths instead of concentrating on his limitations.

His unwavering faith lifted his spirits, took away all of his worries about his unknown future and gave him optimism and confidence. He was certain that God had a wonderful and meaningful plan for his life.

Nick has climbed over every stumbling block that life has thrown in his way up to this moment. According to him, disability is defined as something that prevents you from doing anything. And there isn’t anything in his life that he hasn’t discovered he can’t accomplish.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
