Flash Quotes – Erica Wiebe Gold in Women’s 75kg Wrestling
Erica Wiebe of Stittsville Ontario wins Gold in women’s wrestling at the Commonwealth Games.
“It’s good to have that gold medal, I look good in gold!”
On the pressure:
“To win in a high pressure situation was big. I was feeling it today, I was feeling the pressure and I put a lot on myself, but this is what I need going into the next two years I need to continue to win and continue to win in situations like this.”
“My goal in this bout was to wrestle free. I was so tight today and I knew that my mental game was going on, but I needed to attack and to wrestle the way I want to wrestle. This new style of wrestling is about scoring and being offensive, and calculated attacks and that’s what I want to do.”
The emotion of winning (tears forming in her eyes):
“When I won it was emotional, this is what I have been thinking about and dreaming about, it was awesome, to have that moment for myself, the first time that I did this at a big event.”
“I have never had my anthem played, so I was thinking about that before I went out there, and that is what I was wrestling for today.”
