Even With Rare Birth Defect Zion Clark Defies Odds

21 yr old Zion Clark out of Massillon, Ohio who was born with a rare Disease birth defect that causes his lower half to not grow, but that hasn't stopped him... at all.

Clark who should be recognized as a wrestler full of grit understands you can’t go back and change things , and that you have to move forward in life. Grew up angry until turning 16 and finding his "adopted" but i'm sure if you ask them their is only one title which is mom Kimberlli Hawkins. Who said one she had the blessing to become his mom she said "Let's do this thang" lol. His wrestling coach was taught more about life from Zion than he feels he taught him about wrestling. Through persistence and accountability, and winning 33 matches in his senior season he has made his name in the wrestling world. Always try to be the best of yourself is one his mottos. Zion is looking to wrestle in the Paralympics, and Olympics in the near future. Check out his high flying dunk below... yup Dunk!!!
