Manami Nomura is a Japanese Paralympian nurse who has gone viral because of her incredible performance with a violin using her prosthetic right arm.
Nomura lost her arm in a traffic accident back in November 2004 which forced her to give up on her dream. But things became a lot better for Nomura after she received her prosthetic arm from a facility. She eventually joined the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing where she placed fourth in the 100 meters breaststroke – she also finished eighth at the 2012 London Paralympics.
When she did a rendition of “Thread” by Miyuki Nakajima at the Takarazuka City General Welfare Center in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan on Sept. 2, her performance went viral and for a good reason. Check out her performance below courtesy of Kazushige Masuda:
