Zion Clark is a wrestler at Kent State University at Tuscarawas. He's also the subject of a new documentary that's set to hit Netflix this Friday.
Born without the lower half of his body, the athlete gained local and later national attention for his wrestling and track abilities. The 11-minute documentary film, Zion, which recently showed at the Sundance Film Festival and was directed by Floyd Russ, tells Clark's journey growing up near Massillon.
“I don’t want people to feel bad for me,” Clark told the Massillon Independent. “That’s one thing that annoys me and irritates me. Yeah, I struggle, but I’m really just like any other guy. Just normal, doing my own thing, it just so happens I don’t have legs. And I’m just as good as other people at the sport I do.”
