Manami Ito plays violin with her prosthetic arm

Manami Ito is a nurse, a violinist, and a Paralympian swimmer. She came in 4th in the 100m Breaststroke at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics and 8th at the 2012 London Paralympics. She is also the first nurse to have a prosthetic arm in Japan, and shares her violin performances around the country.
