COSIER-VEVEY (May 12) --- Yasemin ADAR (TUR) went #OffTheMat with United World Wrestling to talk about what it’s like being a history-making, barrier-breaking leader in women’s wrestling.
Adar discussed her introduction to the sport of wrestling and how it led to her becoming the most successful Turkish woman to ever lace up a pair of wrestling shoes. Her history-making feats include becoming the first woman from Turkey to win a medal at the Olympic Games (Tokyo), winning a gold medal at the World Championships (2017) and winning five European titles.
Adar also talked about the stress and pressure that comes along with her newly-appoint role as the Vice President of the Turkish Wrestling Federation.
