Quotes from U.S. women wrestlers George and Roberts and coach Scherr after weighins on Wednesday

Gary Abbott USA Wrestling
09/28/2005


55 kg/121 lbs. - Tina George, Colorado Springs, Colo. (U.S. Army)

"I'm ready. Training went well. I am happy with the workouts and the training partners. Our preparation was more comprehensive than the past. We brought in more coaching staff and volunteers to help. We now have coach Izzy, Bobby Douglas, Tadaaki Hatta, Bill Scherr, the Zeamers, Jason Loukides. Shon (Lewis) has also helped. The people that support us has expanded. It makes a difference. I am ready. I think we have been training, putting in the time and effort. With a lot of preparation, and a little good luck, hopefully things will come together."

59 kg/130 lbs. - Sally Roberts, Colorado Springs, Colo. (Gator WC)

"I feel really good. My timing is on. My pressure is good. I have a lot of people around me who believe in me. I am ready to go. I'm happy all around. My coaches spent a lot of time preparing me. All of it was useful and helpful. It is perfect timing. If it was two days earlier, I might not be ready. If it were two days later, I would want to be wrestling already. This is perfect timing for me."

Bill Scherr, U.S. Women's World Team Coach

"We have the heart of our lineup today, in more ways than one. We have Sally Roberts, who is a great wrestler, and has tremendous energy and enthusiasm. She loves to wrestle and is improving her wrestling all the time. We have Tina George, one of the most talented athletes on the team. She has quickness, strength and determination. She has been close before. This is the year she wants to win it. Sara McMann is one of the most talented technically. Her position and form is tremendous. Her muscles are dynamic and she has great snap with her strength. She has quickness and power. Whatever she wants to do in this sport she can. Hopefully, she is on in this tournament. If she wants to dominate, she can. She is that good. If we are going to produce as a team, these are the three who will produce for us."
