Max Lamm is a 13 year old wrestler from Mars, Pennsylvania. He is an inspiration to many, and to his opponents he is force to be reckon with on the wrestling mat. As a baby, he was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, as a result he has been blind ever since. That has not stop Matt from achieving what he has set out to accomplish.
At a very young age, he told his parents that he wanted to wrestle and although it was hard at the beginning, he soon got the hang of it. Now, he has managed to dominate his current weight class in a regional tournament, currently holds a 10-1 record and even “managed to win his school’s Geography Bee.”
His parents have never treated Matt like a blind person, this mindset has been ingrained in his mind, and he prefers it that way. He also credits his guide dog, Seal, for helping him be less dependent and more active.
