It's not uncommon for the Short Time Wrestling Podcast to head up to Canada and we'll do that again on Episode 282 and chat with Olympic women's freestyle champion Erica Wiebe.
A native of Stittsville, Ontario just outside of the nation's capital of Ottawa, Wiebe opted to give wrestling a go in college after discovering the sport in the ninth grade. Even prior to picking the University of Calgary to further her education, Wiebe had her eyes on competing in soccer and heading to the United States to compete on the collegiate pitch.
Wiebe, ranked second in the World heading into Rio, explains her back story and the turning points in her career that took her from her previous high placement of seventh at the World Championships to winning an Olympic gold in Rio.
