Anand Arnold, who hasn’t let his disability hold him back, is all set to represent India at Mr World 2017, which will be organised by World Fitness Federation (WFF) and World Body Building Federation (WBBF).

29-year-old Anand will compete for the title under wheelchair bodybuilding category, to be held from October 14 to 17 at Lithuania.

But the journey to Mr World was not a cake walk for him. Anand started bodybuilding at the age of 13 and within few months managed to develop spectacular physique. He started participating in local bodybuilding competitions and won his first title Mr Golden Ludhiana the same year.

He was doing great and by the time he turned 15, his physique became a topic of conversation among top bodybuilders. But one day he experienced extreme pain in his lower body and was later diagnosed with lower spinal chord cancer.
