2004 Olympic silver medalist and currently undefeated MMA fighter Sara McMann is set to be profiled in 23rd annual “Courage in Sports” feature on CBS. The show is a “one-hour special recognizing individuals who have overcome monumental challenges to achieve greatness in the world of sports, will air on CBS Sunday.” Check your local listings to tune in for the special event.
While most know McMann for her MMA career or her 2004 silver medal in Athens, Greece, but McMann has overcome a great deal of tragedy in her life to become the person she is today. Be sure to tune in Sunday to see how McMann not only coped, but allowed the losses of her brother and boyfriend to motivate her in her athletic endeavors.
The Olympic silver medalist is currently signed to Strikeforce but could see herself in the Octagon soon if the reports about Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey joining the UFC prove to be true.
