Wrestler’s Selfless Act Gives Opponent First Win

A sophomore wrestler from Albert Lea, Minnesota intentionally lost his match in order to make his opponent's day.

"I found out he had down syndrome, and then once I was told that, I knew that I was going to give him the match because I was told he hasn't won a match or anything yet," Ryleigh Bure said.

He had his mother Danielle Bure film the match against Kyle, who was down syndrome.

Ryleigh said he didn't tell anyone his plan.

"Everyone deserves to win. I know what it feels like and he hasn't had a win yet, so I thought he deserved to feel what it felt like to win."

Though he didn't win the match, Ryleigh said he felt like a winner as he walked off the mat.
