Qian Hongyan was just four when she lost both her legs. A speeding trucker left her for dead as she crossed the main road in her village of Zhuangshang in southern China. 

For nearly two years Qian was immobile as she didn’t even have enough of her body left to sit up in a wheelchair. Doctors said her only hope of being able to move by herself again would be extensive surgery to allow her to be fitted with prosthetic limbs.Her parents couldn’t afford this treatment. 

Qian’s granddad Yuan came up with a simple but effective treatment to get her moving again. He took a basketball the village boys had discarded and cut a hole just big enough for tiny Qian to fit into, padded the inside with stiff floor mats from his car, then propped her up inside. All of a sudden Qian was able to stabilize herself and was able to by move herself by rolling the ball in any direction she wanted. She supported herself using wooden handles. 

From that day on Qian would not be stopped by any obstacle. She went back to school, started to play with her friends again, and started to get back the life of any girl her age. She began professional swimming training in 2007 and defied the odds of her double amputation to become one of the first members of the Yunnan Youth Swimming Club.

She won three gold medals in last year’s Yunnan Para Games and took a gold and two silver medals at the National Swimming Championship for the Disabled (Under 18) in 2009 before continuing impressively at this year’s Para Games.

“I expected Xabi Alonso to play that well, because he’s a world class player - a player like this doesn’t forget to play as well as that. And it doesn’t matter which jersey he wears.”

He’s like Mickey Rourke when he was Mickey Rourke, or Gary Oldman when he was Gary Oldman. Michael Fassbender is that person now. People want to be an actor because of him. People want to be in a movie because of him. People want to make a movie because he could be in it. People want to jam with him. He’s like Ginger Baker.

- Steve McQueen

I have a message for Germany. That you are all going to die. And I want you to look deep into the face of the Jew that is going to do it!

GRAVEYARD’S FULL Darkness falls across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand. Creatures crawl in search of blood to terrorize y’alls neighborhood. And whoever shall be found without the soul for getting down, must stand and face the hounds of hell and rot inside a corpse’s shell.

"[I had to endure] a couple of years of absolute hell. I did every job under the sun from bartending to ushering to temping. I can remember sitting and having a sandwich in Pimlico or somewhere when I was temping – and crying into my Tesco sandwich, thinking ‘What happened? I’m supposed to be sitting in a beautiful library in Cambridge’. I felt like I was a failure."
