“I have tremendous respect for Afsoon and the adversity that she has overcome. And I’m impressed by the positive impact she has made on so many people. Her story inspires me. It is a great American story.”

Dan Gable, Olympic Gold Medalist

“Afsoon is a huge inspiration for us. She had to fight through so many adversities. She is such a great example about how we need to keep fighting for equity.”

Adeline Gray, Olympian and 5x World Champion

Afsoon is more than a wrestling book and about the first American woman to earn a World championship medal. It is also a true American immigration dream story of an Iranian native who witnessed so much pain and bigotry before her wrestling skills and positive outlook earned her a new home and legacy for all Americans. Author Craig Sesker did an outstanding job of getting Afsoon Johnston and others who witnessed her journey to tell this incredible story.”
