Isaiah Bird maybe the 9th wonder of the known world, the 6 year old wrestling prodigy has proven in his young life that no obstacle is big enough to overcome.
Bird practices wrestling at Long Beach Gladiators which only trains the top wrestlers in that area, and Isaiah is among the best young combatants there.
Despite the fact that a birth defect has left Bird without any legs.
His never ending courage and enormous heart has filled the space where his legs are void. In an interview with Long Island News 12, Isaiah proclaimed, “I don’t have legs, but I don’t need no legs, I’m a gladiator and I’m better than everybody. I like to win, I already have 6 medals and I want more.”

Bird stays at a shelter with his loving mother who is going on hard times currently and can’t afford a wheel chair for young Isaiah, but nothing can keep Bird back from doing what he loves. He has proven that no matter how bad things can be in a person’s life, there should be no excuses to hold back a person’s dream.
