This strong woman likes sumo – level 3, A12
The UK’s very own Sharran Alexander can not only boasts she is the soul of female British sumo wrestler, Sharran’s now been awarded the Guinness world record for being the heaviest sportswoman on the planet standing at 6 foot tall and weigh in as over 203 kilos.
“For me, representing my country especially at the end of the Olympics, I am just a little blip on the end but I am so proud of how we’ve done in the Olympics and Paralympics, everything, so, I’ve now got my little tiny share on the end of it as well being called a sportswoman. So I am very, very proud.
I’m not really an aggressive person, but I do, I love the sport. And you probably need a little bit more aggression, but hey, I’m in there, I’m 47 years old and I’m still knocking down some women, you know, so, no problem with that.”
I’m sure you can take on a fewer men as well.
“Oh, yes, oh yes, there’s quite a few men that I can try in some countries.”
Interesting words: boast (speak proudly), weigh in (how much you weigh before a competition), blip (something not very important), tiny (very small), as well (too), knock down (push down with power).
