You can use a prosthetic leg for more than just getting around, and it only took one good-natured Marine to prove it.
And now, she has gone viral — for using her prosthetic limb to chug some beer while at a Los Angeles Lakers game. Those in attendance gave her a rousing ovation, usually reserved for LeBron James and the team. But they mostly stink at the moment.
So this was something about which to cheer. For her efforts, Annika Hustler, the Marine in question, was named Fan of the Game.
Veteran Annika Hustler Goes Viral!
Hustler enlisted in the Marines in 2017, opting to have her leg removed a couple of years later after several unsuccessful attempts to remove a tumor from her foot, per TMZ. She has since become a model and actress.
She’s also become quite an athlete — winning the silver medals in the 100-meter and 200-meter wheelchair races at the recent U.S. Department of Defense Warrior Games.
From the Lakers, she received more than a medal. She got a $100 gift card for being named the game’s best fan.
As for the Lakers themselves … well, it turned out a bit more disappointing. They lost to the Indiana Pacers on a last-second shot. Still, props to this woman for being the real MVP of the night! Way to be the talk of the town, and game. We need more people like this in the world! So carefree, so fun! Give her unlimited game tickets and let her sit in the front row forever!
