Minnesota Teen Brings Tears to Crowd at Wrestling Championship

It would be easy for a high school wrestler to storm off the mat after losing a match in the state championships after intense training to bring home a title. Not Malik Stewart, our new inpsiration for class and sportsmanship.

After falling to Mitchell McKee in Minnesota’s 120-pound class of the state championship, Stewart went over and embraced McKee’s father, Steve, who is battling terminal cancer.

The amazing heartfelt gesture after a loss brought tears to the eyes of many spectators, and thunderous applause.

“I just prayed to God to help me win the match so I can win a state title for my dad.” – Mitchell McKee, KARE 11 News

As it turns out, Stewart can relate to what Mitchell McKee is going through. Stewart’s father suffered a heart attack and died when Stewart was only 7 years old.

For more on the story and see the photographs, see the KARE 11 video report.
