Badass Female Athletes: Samantha Wright
Samantha Wright is a former competitive gymnast but has moved to competitive weightlighting. She was the coach of the USA Gymnastics team for three years, but now trains at Crossfit. She qualified to compete in the Olympics in weightlifting at the national level, so she’s a possible contender in the 2016 games. Her nickname is the Pixie Warrior, which is also pretty badass. She also placed in the top 10 at last year’s USA National Senior Weightlifting Championships. Despite her small stature, she can snatch 145 lbs. and clean and jerk 170 lbs.
