Georgina Nelthorpe fell in love with wrestling while living in Canada for nine years, encouraged by her school teachers.

The Nelthorpe family moved back to her home nation in 2016 and she began grappling at clubs in the north-west, igniting her dream of representing her country.

Nelthorpe won a medal at her first international competition - the Sassari International in 2017 - and repeated the trick at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Having succumbed to idol Erica Wiebe in the semi-finals, she beat Hajaratu Kamara by fall in the bronze medal match to claim a fairytale podium finish.
