Meet Zion Clarke The Professional Wrestler Who Was Born Without Legs Due To A Serious Disorder

The world is full of mysteries and wonderful things. It takes determination and bravery to be able to be able to overcome every obstacle to be able to achieve your dreams and aspirations if you should be in the shoes of Zion Clarke.


Zion Clark, 22, from Ohio, was born with Caudal Regression Syndrome, a serious disorder which impairs the development of the lower spine. 


He explained he grew up in foster care and was often mocked by bullies for having no legs. But his foster mother Kimberlii, who eventually adopted him, was always by his side to cheer him on. 


Thanks to Kimberlii's dedicated support for his love of athleticism, Zion is now close to becoming of the world's most successful pro freestyle wrestlers.

I started wrestling in second grade.

'When I was really little, the first few matches, I didn’t know what to do and neither did my opponent. Zion’s earlier years in school were tough as he endured bullying for his condition and would often respond with anger.


'Some kids were scared to wrestle me – I was scared to wrestle them. I didn’t know what I was doing. Says Zion.



If you are having any type of disability please don't give up. Yes people will surrly mock and bully you, but be determined and focus and you would become who ever you want to be. (My advice).
