PHOTO: What a Wrestler did to Michelle Obama.

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.


  1. This just shows that women in the US, including myself, do not consider ourselves to be better or more privileged then any other woman or man. There actually are honest, good, humble and loving people here and I know there are the same in Nigeria. Just because our first lady allowed herself to be basically human and not to good or not think she was a God and untouchable, does not mean we are a bad Nation! It shows we are just simply normal human beings! I consider all humans are equal!!

  2. Wao, this is it, nigerians are so fool or is it full of themselves, they carry themselves with so much pride, and that is y they achieve less. The energy u use in lifting ur ego so high can b put into meaniningful use. Nigerians, wake up especially does that call themselves office holders
