Nico Calabria was born with only one leg, but once he sets his mind to something, he doesn't let the lack of a leg stop him.

In his 19 years, he has practiced gymnastics, wrestled competitively in high school and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. Ever since he started playing soccer at the age of 5, he's gone full speed ahead and earned a spot on his varsity soccer team. This amazing scissor kick goal went viral on YouTube and has over 1.7 million views.

Nico is experiencing another viral moment as Powerade featured him in this commercial ahead of this summer's World Cup. In November, the Massachusetts teen will represent the U.S. at the Amputee Football World Cup in Mexico.
