"Miss Teddy Myers, of Rome, Georgia, at the age of twenty-four claims the heavyweight woman's wrestling championship of the world... Miss Myers claims that wrestling is the best possible form of exercise for women. 'It makes use of more muscles than any other exercise,' she says. 'One needs suppleness as well as strength, and that's where wrestling comes in. Wrestling, in my opinion, trains the mind more than any other developing sport. It teaches you to be resourceful, to think quickly and to act instantly. If a woman considers beauty alone, wrestling is invaluable, for it develops her figure evenly, leaving no unsightly bunches of muscles showing in one place at the expense of others.'" From "Woman Wrestler Who Claims the Heavyweight Crown," Seattle Post-Intelligencer, January 29, 1928.
