A talented ten-year-old is going viral for performing backflips with her prosthetic leg. JaMiyah Robinson from Columbia, South Carolina, was born with a rare condition called femoral deficiency, which made her left leg much shorter than the right.

 

 

 

 

When JaMiyah was five her mother, LaShawn Jacobs, had to make the devastating condition to have her daughter’s foot amputated. Five years later, JaMiyah is thriving as a dancer and gymnast, who can do backflips on her prosthetic limb. After the amputation JaMiyah had to work hard to gain agility with her prosthetic.
