2012 Women’s World Wrestling Championships Photographs

Saori Yoshida Makes History

On September 28th, I drove to Sherwood Park, Alberta, with friends to cheer on our Canadian athletes in the 55Kg and 72Kg weight class divisions at the 2012 Women’s World Wrestling Championships. I was able to witness history, when 55Kg Japanese wrestler, Saori Yoshida won her 13th straight international win, the most wins by ANY wrestler (male or female) since the inception of the sport.

Over the course of three days, Canada did very well with Jessica MacDonald (51Kg) taking the Gold medal, 19 year old Dorthy Yeats (67Kg), coming off a Gold medal performance at the Junior Worlds, bringing home a silver medal, and Justine Bouchard (63Kg), winning a bronze medal.

The following are photos that I took throughout the day.
