The world of bodybuilding has witnessed several women breaking stereotypes to make a mark in a man’s sport. While the able bodied women have without a doubt gained immense popularity and encouraged several other women to leave their comfort zone, there are some like Devin Coffin who’ve set a whole new example for physically disabled women.
24-year-old Devin who was born in the State of California is a congenital amputee. Which is, she was born with a missing limb; her left arm. Congenital amputation is a rare birth disorder that affects only 1% of the population. As a result, Devin often faced much discrimination and failed to cope with her body image during her childhood.
Made fun of often by insensitive peers, Devin struggled to find even a single person sharing her same fate. It wasn’t until her 20’s that she crossed paths with someone having the same condition. Guess this meet to an extent changed the course of her life as Devin found the much needed encouragement to carry on like any other human being.
It was in the year 2013 that Devin took up rigorous gym sessions to feel a sense of strength within her. In-spite her disability, Devin quickly became addicted to her training and it eventually became her lifestyle.
In order to showcase her newfound confidence, Devin entered the National Physique Committee (NPC). Having competed in several bodybuilding competitions in a span of 3 years, Devin’s popularity has increased to such an extent that she has over 14k followers on Instagram.
Coffin sure has turned into an inspiration and role model for the many girls and women out there who face hardships in life due to their physical deformities.
