Born without limbs Michael 'Handi' Olson plays Street Fighter 3 Third Strike and can perform combos and more There have been some very inspirational stories in the fighting game community about gamers with disabilities who manage to compete despite having arthrogryposis or not being able to see.


Michael 'Handi' Olson was born without limbs, but he didn't let that stop him from gaming.

A video was posted on YouTube showing Olson playing Street Fighter 3 Third Strike with his legs, while still managing to pull off special moves, super arts and even a few combos.

Olson uses a Mad Catz 360 gamepad and depending on the character, which is usually Dudley, Alex, Ken or Hugo — he's limited to using only A, B and right joystick buttons.

Despite these limits, he still makes a respectable showing, hit the jump to check out footage of Handi in action.
Olson is probably best known as a Counter Strike competitor, and we've included some footage of him in action there so you get a better idea of how amazing this guy is.
