GOOD NEWS INTERVIEW: Wounded Warrior Noah Galloway on His Inspirational DWTS Run
Wounded warrior and "Dancing With the Stars" finalist Noah Galloway talked with Jenna Lee this morning about his inspiring run on the hit show.
The double-amputee 101st Airborne veteran lost his left arm and his left leg below the knee in an IED attack in Iraq.
But that didn't stop him from competing alongside dancing partner Sharna Burgess and making it all the way to the finals as countless Americans cheered him on.
Galloway noted that the dance below was watched a record 41 million times in a week.
Still, he said he doesn't consider himself a "dancer," adding that it took a lot of work with Burgess to get the dance moves right.
"Sharna faced a lot of challenges as a dance partner to teach me and choreograph the dances and figure out what was going on. On top of that, I'm not a dancer. Even if I had all my limbs, it was going to be a struggle," he joked.
After all of the practice and rehearsals, Galloway said he feels like he now moves better on his prosthetic leg.
He recalled that he suffered with depression for a few years after he was wounded. Eventually, he said he got back into shape and started running obstacle course races, Tough Mudder races and marathons.
As he gained more attention, he made the cover of Men's Health as the 2014 "Ultimate Guy."
"It motivates me to know that I'm motivating others to do more, to push their limits," said Galloway.
