Viral video: Middle school wrestler goes toe to toe with wrestler with cerebral palsy

Boy intentionally loses to disabled competitor

A middle school wrestler from Tennessee shows the true meaning of good sportsmanship.

Justin Kievit's coach asked him to lose a match to a competitor from another school, Jared Stevens, who has cerebral palsy, according to First Coast News.

After Stevens was laid down on the wrestling mat last Thursday, Freedom Middle School wrestler Justin Kievit bent down to shake his hand before the exhibition match.

Justin scooted next to Jared, pulled the boy’s arm over him and got pinned. The video Kievit's father posted has gone viral on Facebook, racking up more than 87,000 shares and countless views in less than a week.
