CURRENTLY AT OLYMPIC TRAINING CENTER

(2013) The head coach of the US World Grappling Team asked the head coach of the US Olympic Team if he could 'borrow' Veronica for the US World Grappling Trials. 
Veronica won 2 births in a few minutes of fighting. 
She beat last yrs World Bronze medalist.

She could not go to the World Grappling finals because she had to be in South America for an international Judo competition.
The Grappling coach said she was a shoo-in for gold. Ah well...

Veronica's Randori Video

In 2009 the IOC made it many times more difficult for US Judo athletes to make it to the Olympics.  They have essentially required a lot of world wide travel to Judo events at the athletes personal expense. Being #1 in the US is not the critical factor any more. Major US tournaments can cost over $125 for the entry fee alone. Add in hotel and food and you see the problem. Now imagine having to pay twice all that and overseas flight costs.
