The role that I see wrestling playing in my future

Tarleen here!

I see wrestling helping to build me as a person on and off the mats. This sport has instilled honesty, patience, consideration and integrity inside me. I have learned to deal with my losses, and have become a wiser wrestler from the 3 years I have been with Beat the Streets. There are levels to this sport and I have learnt to trust the process, and believe in myself. Wrestling is a fine sport, although it’s time-consuming and with that, I have learned to manage my time to prioritize my homework. I always try to keep in mind “Don’t let wrestling get in the way of your education” – wise words said by a wise man. Although school is important, I’m a good student and get good grades but wrestling is equally as important however its far more unforgiving.

In the future wrestling will take me far in life. I believe I am a promising wrestler and one day I desire to become a Sikh woman Olympic champion and World Champion with my twin sister. I know that sounds cliché, but I am willing to get comfortable with the uncomfortable and do things others aren’t willing to do. Because of Beat the Streets my technique is incomparable to any other girl my age. In the future, I hope to become a pharmacist and because of the lessons I have learnt in wrestling, that should be effortless. I will know how to balance my life, remain calm under pressure and just be an all-around badass, and hard worker. 

Wrestle the North Girl's Edition

This years Wrestle the North Event was a Girls only edition and it was held at Nathan Phillips Square once again. This event was special because we were able to share it with the Girls from Beat the Streets New York City! Thank you for travelling all the way to Toronto BTSNY Girls and Coach Josh!

The event showcased our sport to hundreds of people in the audience and made it on the 6pm CBC news. Our sport rarely gets that kind of coverage and is a great way for us to promote our sport. Our girls loved the awesome WTN Wrestling Singlets they received for participating in the event! Look out for them at your local tournaments as I’m sure the Girls will be sporting them often! We’re already planning for next year’s event so make sure you look out for it…
