Olympic wrestlers help DC middle schoolers learn the sport

WASHINGTON DC --  Some of the best wrestlers in the world took time on Friday to help introduce the sport to Jefferson Middle School students in Southwest DC.

Boys and girls were welcome at the camp put on by Beat the Streets out of New York City and Wrestle Like a Girl from Colorado Springs, home of the United States Olympic Committee.

The kids were taught Olympic-style technical wrestling instruction, exposure to positive athletic role models, education around nutrition and hydration, and positive sports psychology. 

Instructors included Sally Roberts, a two-time bronze medalist in world competition and a three-time national champion. Randi Miller, a 2008 Olympic bronze medalist, and Adeline Gray, a 2016 Olympican and three-time world champion, helped DC students as well.
