The wife of the president of the United States-Michelle Obama’s visit with members of Team USA left them inspired, but one wrestler gave her a lift.
Elena Pirozhkova, the 5-foot-5 wrestler, picked up the 5-foot-11 first lady.
“I hugged her, and then I asked her if I could pick her up. I think she was nervous. I went slow. I just picked her up. I wanted to ask her permission. There was security all around. And she gave it. I will only meet her once. I wanted to do something different.”
Michelle Obama is the head of USA Olympic delegation to London Olympic, 2012.
