The heart of a champion

From the New York Times article:

The high school wrestling career of Dustin Carter ended Friday in defeat but with an ovation from the crowd at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio.

Carter, who had an acute bacterial infection in his bloodstream at age 5 and had parts of all of his limbs amputated, battled his way into Ohio’s Division II wrestling tournament as a 103-pound senior for Hillsboro High School.


“I told him, ‘Dusty, you went way beyond your expectations,’ ” Russ Carter said by telephone. “ ‘With everything you did, you inspired people out there.’ ”

I've categorized this as "Off topic," but is it really? Click here to access the article.
