Is this the guy that survived the blotched abortion attempt?

There is a link in the story that gives some background.  Said he was born without the tibia in both legs.

Wow nice going.  The article said he would have been 6'3 or 6'4 if he had normal leg development.

Way to use a physical disability to an advantage, good for him.

Let me be the first to point out:  he's cheating twice as much as Anthony Robles!   ;)

Kentucky has a single leg amputee, Adam Bender, who I had picked to win the state title. He finished 4th for the second year in a row. I almost took a position as a coach for his school so I follow his success a lot.

Congratulation's to Hasan Hawthorne

Admin's note:  the abortion question was legitimate, as it was relevant to the topic. Any discussion of abortion, or anything political, should be taken up in Politics > General, however.

Thanks.

Here is the wrestler hindered from a blotched abortion attempt.
http://www.lifenews.com/2014/02/18/teen-who-lost-his-legs-in-botched-abortion-made-it-to-state-wrestling-championships/

He didn't make it to the state championships, it was the semi-state.
Bunch of snowflakes run this board, sad how the mods cater to people that support one political party.

I remember when Robles started having more national success the message boards lit up with the stalling accusations.
