This Teen Is Visually Impaired, But That Didn't Stop Him From Winning His First Wrestling Match

Or his second.


Kollin Uttech, a sophomore at Watertown High School, is celebrating a first for his wrestling career.

The 16-year-old, whose school is about an hour's drive from Milwaukee, has been pursuing his passion for a while, but last week, he notched his first win. 

No big deal, right? Kids win sporting matches all the time. But Uttech has been visually impaired since birth — a disability that some automatically assumes will prevent him from ever being good at the sport.

But, just to prove his win wasn't a fluke, he went ahead and won his second bout soon after. 

Check out the video above to learn more about this inspiring athlete and what his coach has to say about his winning streak.
