Inspirational moment: Virginia teen born without legs won a state wrestling championship
Everyone’s inspiration, Adonis Lattimore is a senior student at Virginia High School who was born without legs. We all know that leg is an important body part needed for wrestling.
But interestingly, Lattimore proved that even without legs, you can become a wrestling champion. He became a state wrestling champion by surprising everyone. Yes, he became a champion even without legs.
He won first place in the Virginia High School League Class 6 and 106-pound weight class at the Virginia Beach Sports Center.
“Really if you work hard, you can do anything — even win a state championship without legs,” Adonis Lattimore said.
A year ago, the Covid pandemic constrained the cancellation of wrestling. Lattimore improved to 32-7 this season. He was a regional qualifier as a freshman but he didn’t stay long and missed the region tournament as a sophomore.
“I’ve been dreaming of this since I knew what it was, and to finally have it happen is just — I don’t know how to explain it,” Lattimore said.
