Watch: Polish amputee scores spectacular bicycle kick goal
Forget "Bend it like Beckham," overhead kick like Oleksy.
An amputee who also happens to play soccer made a stunning overhead goal during a game in Bielsko-Biala, Poland, on Sunday.
Video captured the awesome moment when Marcin Oleksy, who has one of his legs amputated, scored a spectacular flying volley during a game between Warta Poznan and Stal Rzeszow, both of which are members of Poland’s top-flight league for amputee teams.

The footage shows a Warta Poznan player floating the ball toward Stal Rzeszow’s six-yard box. Oleksy, moving toward the box, uses his left crutch to launch himself into the air and finish with a dramatic bicycle kick.
Six teams competed in the two-day tournament, which was the sixth and final weekend of matches in the PZU Amp Futbol Ekstraklasa, local media reported. The reigning champions, Wisla Krakow, won the tournament.
