FIGHTER SPOTLIGHT: Yolanda Schmidt
The face of a fighter comes in many forms, and is something nobody can ever categorize or make pre-judgments about accurately. Yolanda Schmidt, the most recent winner of the Muay Thai Angels tournament, proves just that. “The stereotype that I am not feminine based on the sport I partake in, was once one of my biggest struggles. I constantly had to justify why I enjoyed such a ‘violent’ sport when I am such a happy, smiley and bubbly person,” says the world champion.
