I thought this was disturbing in the same way people humored me when I had a severe speech impediment as a young child. I knew exactly what was going on and it was extremely uncomfortable for me. It was just weird and unnecessary. Report

Such an awesome young man to give his opponent the chance to win the match. These are the things we need to see more of in the media as well as here on Spark People. Report

Inspiring but disappointing that the young man who allowed his opponent to win was ignored as he walked off the mat after the match. Still, a positive show of true sportsmanship. Good going! Report
