Kasey Smith started this petition to United World Wrestling

To whom it may concern:

At Sofia 2019, Fatih Demirhan, a 10 year old Turkish kid who has Down Syndrome, got to wrestle on the main mat against his coach, Burak Toy. Demirhan won, and after his match,  Demirhan received a gold medal, just as his abled counterparts all week. 

This inspirational story is the main reason why I'm petitioning to have a special needs division at a UWW world championship event. We need more stories like Fatih's and more Down Syndrome wrestlers to toe the line. Wrestling should be for all. 

Thanks for your time,

KASEY Smith
