Luchador Pequeño Olímpico

This is Pequeño Olímpico, Spanish for "Little Olympian" which alludes to the fact that he wrestles as a mini version of 'Olympico'.

The term Mini-Estrella (Spanish for "Mini-Star") is used in lucha libre to describe a division of short professional wrestlers or luchadors, some of whom have dwarfism. The Mexican Mini-Estrellas is comparable to midget professional wrestling practiced around the world, but with the notable exception that some of the Mini's, such as Pequeño Olímpico, do not have dwarfism but are simply short.

I like the vulnerability Pequeño Olímpico shows in some of these images.
