It can't be easy for a wrestler from Northern Michigan University to go viral, but Ellis Coleman did just that at the Junior World Championships when he pulled off one of the more ridiculous wrestling takedowns you'll ever see.

Coleman went full-airborne at the whistle, flying over Mehdi Chooli Zeidvand of Iran and flipping him on his head before he could even tell what happened. Apparently, the move is called "the flying squirrel."

Not surprisingly Coleman went on to win the match, and eventually was awarded the bronze medal in his weight division.

Hat tip to Fourth-Place Medal!
