Episode 286 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast features the first woman in American history to win an Olympic gold medal in wrestling — Helen Maroulis.
Even after winning gold in Rio over Japan juggernaut Saori Yoshida, Maroulis was back on the mat working with her coaches in California. Maroulis takes us through the busy media tours she's been on since making history in Rio in August. She'll talk about Cal Ripken Jr., The History Channel and even give her opinion on the singlet debate. Yup. We haven't gotten a woman's point of view on that one yet, have we?
Maroulis is always a fun interview and a true American hero.
