Derkin Tokmak Probably Can't Get a Handicapped Parking Sticker

My hero of the day is Derkin Tokmak, a performer with Circ du Soleil. I found a video of his that's absolutely amazing that you can see at the bottom of this post.

Tokmak, 28, contracted polio when he was one year old, according to his Web site's bio.  He was left without control of his left leg, and he lack some control of his right leg.

Despite that, he grew up to become a break dancer, then hooked up with Circ du Soleil. His prowess at dancing, using his crutches as part of his breathtaking, acrobatic act, probably means the DMV would turn him down for a handicapped parking sticker. 

It appears Tokmak doesn't care about that. Watch him dance, so next time you won't whine about how you move a little awkwardly after twistting your ankle a bit:
