Women wrestle in on the action

Already a popular sport in Mexico, women are joining the wrestling craze in numbers and some for a very good reason.

    Wrestling is a sport that has long been associated with men but that isn't putting off the women of Mexico.

    Whether it is for self-defence, or for fun, a growing number of women are juggling wrestling with their busy family lives.
