One of the things about high school that moulded me the most was Wrestling. I had finally found a place to funnel all the hormones and emotions of being a teenager into... It tested my limited endurance, and it made me re-examine myself. It also was a bit negative, because it was all about weight classes. But it wasn't a disaster. I learned from it, and I loved it, and it remains the only sport I ever really cared about.
My medals always bothered me, because all of them were by default. I was one of the very few heavyweights in two provinces.
