"Yes, the challenges are that there are a lot of fellow wrestlers who are sexist, when I started they told me, 'What are you doing here? Go do the dishes.' Or they were personal. They hurt me, but since I liked the sport, I kept going."

'Lucha libre', which translates as "free fighting" or "free wrestling," is a style of professional wrestling developed in Mexico.
It has been popular in the country for decades and has a huge fan base across the country.
But now women wrestlers are beginning to take part in the traditionally male practise of 'Lucha libre'.
Dolores Morales leads two very separate lives.
She is a mother and grandmother, but when in the ring fighting under the name of "La Rebelde", she shows no mercy to her opponents.
Professional wrestling has been a popular sport in low-income neighbourhoods in Mexico since the 1950s.
Female wrestlers are new to the sport.
As a member of the Lucha Libre, Mexico's version of the WWF, Morales fights within a world of masked identities that combine exhibitionist acrobatics with real athleticism.
Dolores Morales says that when she first started wrestling she encountered a lot of sexism, but because she liked the sport so much she was not intimidated by any negative remarks.
Lucha Libre is not an exclusive, corporate-dominated world of cable-TV celebrities.
Matches are held in gritty arenas in working-class neighbourhoods across the country
Dolores says that "La Rebelde", her wrestling name, loves fights that last longer than usual.
While there are many superstars, fights often feature entry-level contestants, including middle-aged, overweight men who slip on their own masks and become larger than life.
Apart from participating in wrestling matches, Dolores helps out with coaching at her local gym.
Morale's partner is a local wrestler known as "El Gato," (the cat).
His real name is Rafael Reyes Gonzales.
He says women wrestlers have attracted plenty of media attention and now other women want to take part in the sport.
