“I think it's going to bring out our personality as a community,” Holm said. “When you're training hard in rooms all across the country, you get this kind of tenacity that wrestlers are known for, and I really like to see that and I think that's kind of been our response.”
Holm said the discipline wrestlers possess has helped the wrestling community deal with one of the hardest things the sport has seen.
“I think you are kind of seeing a mirroring of what it is we are taught as athletes,” Holm said. “The approach that we take to the mat is a similar approach to the way we are handling this moment. Hopefully it's a teaching and coaching moment, and so far I think we've responded very well to that.”
