I asked Erica “After coming out of that big win in Turkey at the Yasar Dogu tournament how are you feeling as you approach the Olympic trials?”

Her response was:

The goal has always been to do everything I can to best prepare to have an optimal performance in Tokyo. I try and take it one day at a time and one step at a time. It was great hunting down some top opponents at the Yasar Dogu but I am feeling hungrier than ever to continue to evolve my wrestling.
