Actor Tom Holland (@tomholland2013) found out he was Spider-Man on Instagram. “Marvel had posted a photo and said, ‘Go to our website to find out who the next Spider-Man is!’” says 20-year-old Tom, who grew up in London. “I rushed to my computer, and lucky old me, it said my name. I went absolutely crazy.” With one film as Spider-Man under his belt and a second, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (@spidermanmovie), coming out this summer, Tom adapted to his role and the physical training it demands, from freerunning to gymnastics — anyone who frequents his account is familiar with Tom’s signature backflips. But his favorite part about being Spider-Man is meeting kids while dressed as the superhero. “It’s such a joyous experience to see how happy it makes them to meet the real-life Spider-Man,” he says.

“I can’t really say I had any female riders to look up to,” says motocross champion Vicki Golden (@vgolden423). As a three-time X Games gold medalist, and the first female to qualify for Supercross and Arenacross, the 24-year-old from Southern California is paving the way for female riders. Despite concussions and major injuries, Vicki has one motto: never quit. “Broken bones and all that stuff is just part of the game,” she says.

Paralympian Beatrice Vio’s (@bebe_vio) relationship with fencing started at age 5. “It was love at first sight,” says the gold medalist, now 20, from Venice, Italy. In 2008, Beatrice contracted meningitis, which resulted in the amputation of both legs from the knee and both arms from the forearm, with severe scarring to her face and body. “Getting back into fencing was the only thing I had on my mind,” she says. “Some people said it was impossible, but I did it!” Today, Beatrice competes in wheelchair fencing, using a special prosthetic device, created by her father, to hold her foil (a fencing weapon). “In wheelchair fencing, you can’t move backward — you can only attack,” she says. “This is the same thing that you have to do in life, and I always do.”
