*Update* Saori Yoshida wins gold!

14:12 JST August 10, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Japan’s Saori Yoshida won the gold medal in the women’s 55kg freestyle wrestling today, and now she hopes NEWS’ Takahisa Masuda will keep his promise to her, reports Sports Navi.


Yoshida has won the gold medal in her category in every Olympics since Athens in 2004.


During an interview with Sports Navi, she said there was one thing she looked forward to doing other than more wrestling training.

“I want to meet Massu (laughs).  I’d like to get a hug from him, like he promised (on a show I was on before the Olympics).  I got the gold medal (laughs).  I read messages of support from NEWS fans on blogs, like, ‘one more win till you get that hug’, and I really think that helped me.”
