By now, Vujicic's story is well-known to many who have watched his YouTube videos, listened to his motivational speeches or read his books. At 30 years of age, the Australian-born evangelist can play golf, soccer, jump off diving boards, swim, skateboard, even skydive – all without the use of arms or legs. Diagnosed with a rare birth disorder, Vujicic has had to adapt to the world without arms and legs since the day he was born – but despite the many obstacles in his way, he has found that through the power of hope and faith, nothing has managed to stop him.
On Sunday's "Oprah's Lifeclass," in which Winfrey also talked with Pastor Rick Warren from Saddleback Church in California, the talk show host introduced Vujicic, who was sitting in the audience, with a preview video showcasing the various sports and activities the evangelist engages in despite his physical limitations and the inspirational conferences he hosts around the world.
