Boy, 4, Runs Like an Adorable Loon From Girl During Wrestling Match
When it comes to providing a laugh, this little tyke has us down for the count.
Four-year-old Isaiah Lineberry is the star of this video, in which he runs around the mat after the referee blows the whistle to begin his wrestling match against a 5-year-old girl back in December in Pennsylvania.
“I asked him afterwards, ‘So why did you run?'” Isaiah’s mother, Alexis Salyers, told ABC News. “And he said, ‘I don’t know, Mommy, but it was silly.'”
Isaiah’s dad wrestled in high school and his stepfather is an assistant with Ohio State’s wrestling team, so the sports is definitely in his blood, which means there will probably come a point when he doesn’t pull stunts like this anymore. Actually, it sounds like he’s already reached that point. “He’s wrestled in several tournaments since then and has been in the top four placements in them,” Salyers said. “It was just that one fluke match.”
His mom says he understands the sport, but may have just reacted to the response he got when he began running. “He knows what to do,” said Salyers, who also believes the girl’s size may have played a role in Isaiah’s behavior. “He just let loose and the entire crowd started busting out laughing.”
