6. Tom Staniford
Tom Staniford is one man with a fascinating story.
While most people have an awful time shedding the extra pounds, Tom faces an entirely different problem. His body is unable to store any fat, a condition known as MDP syndrome. Only seven other people in this world have it.
At 1.91 and 30 kg, Tom is basically a walking skeleton. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop him from becoming a professional cyclist. That’s probably the only sport where such an extremely low weight counts as an advantage.
However, even riding the bike came with an awful taste. Tom suffered a head-on collision with a car in 2006 that almost killed him.
You will be surprised to know Staniford has a girlfriend. Isn’t it cute to see how love conquers all differences?
