Kyle Maynard Story, Video Hit ESPN

The video includes scenes from the Suwanee resident's childhood and of his recent climb of Mount Kilimanjaro.

"I've always looked at Kyle as a normal big brother," his sister says.

And so the world gets another look at the remarkable story of Kyle Maynard, the Suwanee man who recently climbed to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro -- despite being a congenital quadruple amputee.

The new video, which is attached, includes footage of Maynard's childhood, of his exploits as a wrestler, of emotional encounters with others as a motivational speaker -- and of his journey up the tallest peak in Africa, which was completed in January.

The recent feat was not easy. "At the end of the day, I was pretty wiped," he recalls. And in mid-climb, the team changed to a new but more dangerous route  -- "it's a big risk," the narrator says.
