It was time when I was just 16 years old studying in a school when one day a wrestling coach came and told us about this sport because in next few days some students were going to be chosen for ny wrestling competition. That coach told us everything about this sport and how beneficial it is and how one can get benefited with it if learns it. The one thing which I liked most about it was the thing that it is one of the few sports which is played in Olympic Games and that thing attracted me because I knew that in this sport I could make my career.
Next day in school some techniques were going to be taught by the coach for preliminary preparation provided we could get into a wrestling club and could take part in NY wrestling competition. Some students including me were taught some techniques by the coach. I think it was the best time when I learned something essential and needed for life thing in my life. Some wrestling lessons which I learned in school change my total scenario towards the things. I realized that this sport is not just about winning or fighting, it is just about self confidence.
After some time I joined a summer wrestling camp near my town where I learned many thing about this sport and about its techniques and I knew that this sport is practiced around the world then I knew that I was not the only one who was learning it there were many who were learning it. I also knew that it is the one of the oldest and organized sports in history.
The wrestling which I was learning is a type of free style wrestling and has its origin in ‘catch as catch can’ wrestling. The one thing I was taught during my training in wrestling club was an ultimate goal of this sport or you could say a final punch to your opponents. It was just to throw and pin you opponent down to the mat which resulted in a win. I defeated many keeping this goal in my mind and won an Olympic Gold medal. At that time I was 24 only.
After winning a gold medal I was preparing for another competition where I was bestowed with many awards and remarks like strong man, great man, tough man and many others. Listening these words were a great experience for me and it seems good when in a crowd of thousand and million people you are greeted with these words and comments. After winning awards I am now running my own summer wrestling in long island where I am giving training to many young and wannbes wrestlers.
If you want to join you can also come to summer camp in long island where many come and I want to thank that wrestling coach who came to my school at that time and told me about this sport. I love this sport and want to excel it more and want to win it more and also want to teach others provided they can learn about this sport. It is not only for winning competitions but also for self defense provided you could be afraid of nothing. For me wrestling is the thing which gives me everything and I like it because it makes me powerful and seem like I am flying high in the sky.
