Sally Roberts has been there, done that.
On Episode 289 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, Roberts, a two-time World bronze medalist, talks about her new non-profit organization, Wrestle Like A Girl, a group focused on growing females in sport and life.
A native of Washington, Roberts found wrestling as a way to keep herself out of trouble — like real trouble. Wrestling prior to the world of Cadet and Junior Championships in Fargo and in an era where college wrestling for women was still in its infancy, wrestling led her to World Championships as well as a career in the Army's World Class Athlete Program.
Roberts explains what WLAG is about, who else is involved and how they are looking to empower girls all over the country and the world through wrestling and sports.
