Romanian national team member Simona Buibar hasn’t been wrestling very long. In fact, she started four years ago at age 18 and has already represented her native country in two World-level competitions - the U23 World Championships and the World Military Games.

On Episode 612 of Short Time, Buibar explains her interesting journey through the sport that’s brought her to the United States to train at Arizona State, her growth in developing the skills to improve coming from another sporting background as well as the challenges she’s cleared with the sport and how the sport’s given her strength to defend herself off the mat.

Buibar has been trying to go home to Romania since May and she outlines the difficulties in trying to leave the United States amid a global pandemic.
