Now that's a cool dude!


This inspired me like nothing else.

Fu**en awesome, bro.


Checkmate to anyone who says people with down syndrome aren't any different. This guy not only works harder than you, he can kick your ass too.


I sense some great parenting!


I think his success largely comes from the caring home he was raised in. I find it hard to imagine a home where retarded children are not abused physically or emotionally.
