A boy from Afghanistan born without arms has revealed his desire to one day compete in the Olympics.

Abbas Karimi is only 14-years-old but he says that he wants to take part in the Paralympics and will not let his disability hold him back.

He is urging the government to support him and if Abbas gets the funding he needs will become the first swimmer to represent his country at the Games.
