  • Kaori Icho, wrestling’s ideal role model

    21 Jul 2014 | 5:09 pm

In the meantime, the 30-year-old from Hachinohe won seven world titles between 2002 and 2013, not to mention three golds at the Asian Games. This all makes her the ideal role model for aspiring champions, and she will be passing on her expertise and know-how to the young wrestlers competing at the second Youth Olympic…
