always respect her so she is my resource person. I involve all of my team members but with her skill level, I depend on her a lot.”
Fulp-Allen has set extremely high goals for herself. This year, she plans on continuing to get better and better and focus on the World Team Trials.
“Everything is a focal point because you go from one tournament to the next,” she said. “When I am done with school, I can focus on wrestling more. Right now, I am thinking about each step on the Olympic cycle. I saw the Olympics but I felt pretty young in wrestling so I wanted to find where I could make a dent in the sport. Now it is time to make those goals a reality.”
Allen and Fulp-Allen are accomplishing their goals not only as a coach and athlete but as father and daughter as well.
“Our family is was really proud and excited for us when we won our awards because we did it together,” she said. “We are still accomplishing our own goals together. Even though my dad is not an athlete anymore, he is still accomplishing great things.”
