When you're beaten down and absolutely discouraged about yourself, you're probably looking for a way out the horror you're feeling inside. We know exactly how that feels. But most definitely, these five people will know better. Check out these top 5 best sports players who have inspiring stories to tell!

Bethany Hamilton

This awesome pro-surfer lost an arm after a shark attack while she was surfing out in open water. The turmoil of adjusting to the loss of a limb was overwhelming, but she managed to get through her fear and heartache and get back on the board again.

Michael Jordan

Imagine being blamed for losing a game 26 times because he missed the winning shot. He got kicked out of the basketball team in High School, lost over 300 games, and also managed to screw up a win with missed shots.
For Micheal Jordan, his winning streak started all because of his failures. He treats failures as learning experiences to do better when another opportunity is given, and for that reason, he is considered as the best sports player in basketball history.

Keiran Behan

Imagine yourself being broken twice. When he was ten, he was told never to walk ever again after having a cancerous tumor was removed from his thigh. This resulted in massive nerve damage that literally paralyzed him to a wheelchair for more than a year.
Out of strong will, he managed to get back on his feet and practice gymnastics again. However, not shortly afterward, he fell and incurred a heavy head injury that made him randomly pass out when he blinks.
After years of getting back on his feet again, getting multiple fractures, having his knee snap before the European Championships, he didn't stop. His sheer inner strength led him to win the Challenge World Cup Floor Championship. It also made him qualify for the 2012 London Olympics making him our best sports player that overcame the most physical injuries.
