National team wrestler and former Yukoner Erica Sharp pinned down a bronze medal at the world wrestling championships in Baku, Azerbaijan, this Saturday.

Sharp, who trains in Calgary, defeated Tatyana Bakatyuk of Kazakhstan 1-0, 3-2 in the women’s 51-kilogram division.

The results bode well for 32-year-old Sharp’s chances to make the Beijing Olympics next summer.

Fellow Yukoner Brittanee Laverdure, who also trains in Calgary, just missed a medal in the 59-kilogram division, finishing fifth after losing to Dorj Narmandakh of Mongolia.
