Robinson Martinez (born c. 1980) is a Colombian cyclist who had a leg amputated at the age of five.
Martinez was born into an impoverished family. He lived a normal childhood until he was bitten by a snake. He got immediate medical attention, but his injury worsened.
When Martinez was six years old, his brothers received bicycles as Christmas presents. Martinez told his father that he wanted a bicycle too.
