Denver East's Maya Nelson can do it all

KUSA – Maya Nelson may be one of the most interesting athletes at the state wrestling tournament this year.

Most of the attention she draws is focused on the fact that she is a girl wrestling against some of the state’s best boys. In fact, Nelson has a chance to become the first female wrestler to place in the state tournament.

What’s even more impressive is wrestling may not be her best talent.

Nelson is a phenomenal a singer. So phenomenal that she made it to the second round of NBC’s hit show, The Voice, last year.

If she grabs your attention when you see her enter the mats taking on the boys, just wait untill you hear her sing before a wrestling tournament.

She can flip the switch from a girly girl to an intense competitor with ease. Whichever you happen to catch will leave you impressed.
