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.

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!

I disagree that throwing the game was 'helping' the young man, His victory was in being part of the game and not letting his disability stop him from participating in life. Throwing the game for him, is reinforcing the cultural stereotype that only 'winning' is winning.
I know the young man who threw the game did it out of a good place. This is not a critisism of him. This is a criticism of our society which divides people between winners and losers instead of having a more open, inclusive attitude to competition and life. Do you know in some cultures community and togetherness is more valued than being the top person to win? We need more of that in North American society.
