A veteran Olympian who won three consecutive gold medals in women’s freestyle wrestling at the 2004, 2008, and 2012 Olympic Games, Yoshida has endeared herself to the Japanese people after she tearfully apologized in interviews for taking a silver medal home at the 2016 Olympics.
Yoshida performed the stunt over the weekend with some help from Koji and Daiki of the comedy duo Brillian, making it appear like a comedy skit.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
