Wrestler with Down Syndrome Gets a Match [VIDEO]
Meet two incredible people who show what sportsmanship is all about.
Demetrius De Moors is an incredible wrestler from Georgia. He wrestled at Georgia’s prestigious South Metro Wrestling Tournament in a very special match. Michael Lind was born with Down Syndrome and loves wrestling. So when it came time for the prestigious tournament Lind’s coach wanted to get him some time on the mat.
Moors answered the call for an exhibition match. As a former high school wrestler I saw exhibition matches for folks with special needs. They followed the formula of shaking hands, and a wrestler flopping to the mat allowing the opponent to make a pin. Moors, went at his match differently. He made Lind work for his pin.
Watch the video and witness true sportsmanship.
