Today on International Women's Day, we want to encourage everyone to raise their hand and #ChooseToChallenge
Women are strong. Women are powerful. Women are leaders.
To celebrate International Women's Day, BC Wrestling Association is proud to present an interview with Abby Lloyd, 4X All-American, 2018 WCWA Champion, and 5X national Judo champion. Being an athlete, and now coach, Abby stands as a role model to many youth and young women who are just starting their journeys on the mat.
