Wrestling legend Saori Yoshida is recognized as a remarkable winner for what she accomplished on the mat.

Even though she claimed a silver medal at her final marquee competition, the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, that won't change. After all, she followed her father's words instead of chasing another Olympic dream and made a difficult decision.

Two days after her retirement announcement, the legend appeared in public and once again spoke about her intention of stepping off the mat at a Tokyo news conference on Thursday.
