My name is Fabiano Ventura, I’ve been a bodybuilding athlete since I was 17 years old, I started competing to prove to myself that I was able to overcome the limits imposed by society. I already became world champion in 2011 in which was my biggest title until today


  • What happened? Why is your leg amputated?

    I had a congenital disease that made me amputate 1/3 of the right leg. I have a congenital condition that has hurt me throughout my childhood. When I was a teenager, in high school, I could not help the pain anymore and decided to amputate the leg.

  • Why did you get started?

    To show for myself that there is no limit

  • What made you want to compete?

    When I saw the photo of an American competing

  • How did you go about doing it?

    Soon after seeing the photo I began to train at age 15 and was already on stage at age 17

  • What motivates you?

    What motivates me daily and can do what I love and show to the pessimists that there is no limit

  • What suggestions or tips do you have for others?

    That does not stop doing what it has will, that limitation is in people's heads
