Three U.S. women's freestyle wrestlers recently volunteered in a community service project, where they read books to children receiving care at Memorial Children's Hospital in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The three U.S. Olympic Training Center athletes involved were Jessica Medina, Adeline Gray and Alicia Hubbard. Medina is a two-time U.S. World Team member and Gray competed on the 2009 U.S. World Team. All train at the U.S. Olympic Training Center.

The story about this visit was published on the U.S. Olympic Committee's website, TeamUSA.org, and was written by Anna Palmer, a judo athlete who also volunteered to read to the young children.

Read the story and see how members of USA Wrestling's women's program are helping give back to others in their community.
