That's one way of explaining the performance of 19-year old Jonathon Babulall.
I'm sure there are other words to describe his accomplishments and efforts on the wrestling mat. Babulall has done something quite rare for a teenage wrestler in the Greater Toronto Area.
Four consecutive gold medals at the provincial high school finals.
His latest came in the 47.5 kilos in Tillsonburg last Friday afternoon. I found out from one of his student friends, then confirmed by his mother. Yes, I had asked organizers for the championship results - but they never came on Friday or we would have had them in the paper on Saturday and on our website.
Jonathon Babulall, who attends Turner/Fenton Secondary in Brampton, is something special. I saw him wrestle last year and he had the gold medal won before I had a chance to sit down and thoroughly enjoy his athleticism. I should mention that he has also won five consecutive Peel Region high school titles.
Yes, he has a brother who also wrestles. Shayne - also at Turner/Fenton - won a medal in the 51 kilos at the provincial finals. But, his was silver. Nothing wrong with that, right?
By the way, they've also wrestled at the Junior Provincials in Sudbury. Last January, Shayne beat his older brother Jonathon in the 50 kilos. Yes, Shayne is bigger and may have had the physical edge. But, in my books, they're both champs.
I had a chance to speak with their mother, Sandra, a delightful woman. Proud, you bet. Dad is too. But, get this, the two boys don't like it when their parents come out to see them wrestle. So, mom explained to me, that she waited at home for the telephone to ring and the results. The call came before the results. Nervous, yes. Worried, yes. All parents worry about their children and while some people believe wrestling is a sport that doesn't result in injury, the facts show injuries do occur - like in all sports.
Both children were happy. Both children won medals. Both children contributed to their school winning a second consecutive boys' team championship too. Great story.
