In American culture, appearance is valued highly. Because the media portrays men and women as being both attractive and healthy, most individuals feel inadequate if they do not live up to the high standard of beauty. Both men and women are influenced in America to look a certain way, which is why this video of a fourteen-year-old plus-size diver has sparked such a buzz.

In the video, a young boy is seen standing on top of a high diving board. When he jumps off the board, he begins to float through the air and do a flip that leaves you breathless. Zeke Sanchez is the name of the teenager who wants everyone to know that despite his age, he can dive because he is big.

Zeke wowed the audience when he got on the diving board in front of the camera and proved that despite being a larger size than usual, he deserves to be a part of the game. Despite his large-size frame, the boy demonstrated that he was as talented as other people, suggesting that everyone can participate in a sport if they put their hearts into it and give it their all.

On June 15, 2022, ABC15 Arizona broke the story of the boy who flies high when they released a video about him. The teenager is interviewed in the report and explains how he enjoys diving and being a part of the activity.

More than fifteen hundred people vented their support for the youngster on social media. The following are some of the comments received from viewers in Arizona and across the United States:

“Props to the kid for his dedication! What he’s doing is not easy. What is even more important is that he is outside doing what makes him happy. Be happy, kid.”

“We need more positive news like this. I’m telling y’all, the more happiness we put out, the more gets generated. Do what you love in life. This kid is awesome!”

“The news needs more stories like this. Especially nowadays. Glad he’s having fun and enjoying himself. Way to stick with your dreams and ambitions, young man.”

“He’s adorable. Automatically just love the kid. You can tell he’s a great person from just listening to him. Wish him all the success in the world!”

“I’m just glad he’s enjoying himself. As to the weight… I was 200lbs by the time I was 12. The weight stayed all my life (I’m 54), but at about 16, it started tightening up. By the time I was 18, I was considered buff. This young man may just be coming into his stride. Keep up the diving and trampoline, and most of the all- have fun!”

“My plus-sized 50-year-old brother passed away in June of last year. I know he would have loved this kid’s talent!!! I am giving this a thumbs up for him!”
