Olympics Legends

Rio 2016 Olympics have just finished and sport legends like Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt are being celebrated after achieving stellar records. Being a women wrestling fan, I also have to pay homage to a much less known athlete who got her fourth gold medal in a row: Japan´s Kaori Icho, a wrestler in 58 kg category and a Japanese household name.

We have below her final match against Russian´s Valeria Koblova who was winning until the final seconds. Despite the audience wild screams in Japanese, we are in Rio and not in Tokyo...
