(Fox Sports)   High school wrestler loses state championship match, does he: A) storm off the mat in a huff, B) complain about the referee, or C) embrace his opponent's father, who's battling cancer, and congratulate him on his son's victory?   (msn.foxsports.com) divider line 26

Class act, kid

This being fark, I would have figured he picked up a chair and tried to beat the cancer out of the other guy's dad, and then masturbated furiously on the coach's daughter while he watched.

You were soooo close.

Being it's wrestling, he'd be jerking-off on the coach's SON.

/missed it by that much

And I just had to drag them all the way to the other side of the gym.

Nice find, subs. Makes me wonder if I'd do the same. Perspective, y'know?

Top-level wrestlers always seem to be really great sportsmen for the most part. I suspect it has something to do with lots of them being from the midwest but  not getting fellated constantly by boosters and cheerleaders for four-to-eight years like football players do.

/Wrestled two years in high school
//Wasn't top-level

Gracious even in defeat.

You're a class act kid.

Wrestlers are, within the confines of the arena anyway, the more classy athletes.

Then as the father turned to walk to his family, the wrestler grabbed a chair from the scorer's table and proceeded to hit the father across the back with it.

Best shoot ever.

The shoot in a few months will be better.

There's been a lot of stories similar to this on Fark the past year. It seems that our youth understands empathy. Even the millennials display considerable amounts of it. Let's hope they never lose it.

I bet the kid threw the match for the opponent.

I'm subby, and I didn't want to mention that possibility, but did you see the kid that lost? He looks like he could pin a Mack truck. He reminds me of Shute from Vision Quest.

If this was in Florida, the kid would have bashed the dad with a steel chair, then stood over him flexing and yelling 'get some!' over and over again.

I'm glad this wasn't there. Standing ovation to the kid. Class act.

And since he got stuck in the first minute, he wasn't even all that sweaty.

/seriously though, good on him

I used to see this all the time when i was in high school. It was in the midwest, but almost all wrestlers were instructed to shake hands with the opponent and with the opposing coach after each match, win or lose.

Always made those great matches seem much better after the fact.

Sometimes I think there may be hope for the human race.

Gassho, kid.

There's something seriously wrong when there are almost 1500 comments on fake wrestling, and just over 20 on great stories like this

Damn cat dandruff

/don't even have a cat

I hate to be cynical, but I wondered the same thing.  Having wrestled through high school, I can't say that I saw too many pins in the state championships, much less in the state finals.  This was in Washington state, I would assume a hotbed like Minnesota this would be even more the case.  Not only did this guy get pinned, but in the first round?  I suppose he could have just gotten caught in something, but it seems fishy.
