Wrestling: A Woman's Sport
Just spent a few days in Taiwan for a story on the national women's team. Wrestling is a pretty new sport in Taiwan and most of the emphasis is on the women's program. Basically, wrestling is woman's sport there. They don't bother segregating practice sessions. And they mostly practice male vs. female. The live goes were pretty amazing. The girls didn't just hold their own, they pounded on the guys. Everywhere you looked there was a female wrestler grinding her opponent into the mat.
