If you watched HBO’s most recent episode of “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel,” you met Kyle Maynard, 24, an athlete and congenital amputee born without forearms and lower legs. It’s a pretty amazing story. The show first profiled Maynard several years ago when he arose to national prominence as a college wrestler with a 35-16 record — no easy feat when you’ve got 50-percent less in the limbs department than your every competitor. Since then, he’s written a best-selling book about his life, opened a gym, became a motivational speaker, and started competing in mixed martial arts cage matches. Next, he plans on climbing Mt. Everest. On top of all that, he’s a hottie. Check him out on “Larry King Live” after the jump.
