Rumble THIS DETERMINED 22-year-old is continuing to make his mark in the world – despite living with no legs. Zion Clark was born with caudal regression syndrome, a rare disorder that impairs the development of the lower spine. In Zion’s case, he was born missing both of his legs. Residing in Ohio, Zion says that one in every 100,000 children are born with the congenital condition each year – and due to his unfortunate circumstances, Zion ended up in foster care for the first 16 years of his life. Fostered by his now-mother Kimberlli, Zion now has a fantastic support system and has continued to find his strength and passion in the form of WRESTLING. The talented and keen sportsman is bidding to become one of the best freestyle wrestlers in the world. Zion’s earlier years in school were tough as he endured bullying for his condition and would often respond with anger. Zion told Truly: “School wasn’t the greatest time for me, but by the time I was a senior I was able to turn it around and get into college and do everything I wanted to do.” And a big reason why Zion was able to turn his life around was down to his positive outlook and the relationship he has with his mother, Kimberlli. For Zion, his future now holds endless possibilities and he will never stop aiming high. He said: “My dreams and ambitions? One day, to make the Olympic team and be one of the best freestyle wrestlers in the world.”
