Wrestling Erica


I had the great pleasure of spending some time getting to know Olympic wrestler Erica Wiebe – both on and off the mat. I suspect everyone in Canada will be hearing a lot more about Erica in the weeks to come. I wish all my stories were as enjoyable to work on as this one. Few, thankfully, result in as many bruises.

By way of a post-script, my high-school wrestling coach emailed me to say:

“Hi Marcello, great article in the Swerve magazine. Hope you didn’t get beat up too bad. Next time bring me to coach, I can throw in the towel for you.”
