Olympic wrestling champion Carol Huynh is training for a different kind of battle this year. Using words instead of physical prowess, she'll defend Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese as it fights for the 2013 Canada Reads title.
Carol Huynh was born to Canadian-Vietnamese refugees and started wrestling in high school. After the 2012 London Games, she spoke to Jian Ghomeshi on Q about post-Olympic fever, her parent's influence on her, and old-school toughness -- something that may be helpful for Canada Reads. We pulled the interview for you to listen to below.
