A Colorado powerlifter recently posted on her social media account how she managed to stand up for herself while on holiday. Although being warned about these sorts of incidents, the woman experienced first-hand what it feels to be able to defend yourself in a potentially dangerous situation.
Colorado Powerlifted Ashamed of the Way She Reacted
Meet Leanna Carr, a 26-year-old powerlifter, and bodybuilder from Fort Collins, Colorado. Carr, whose passions included traveling and, obviously, living a healthy and active life, has a rather unpleasant experience while traveling to Europe.
During her stay in Dublin, the Colorado powerlifter said that she woke up one morning, left the hotel, and went to a bus stop to continue her tour of the city. While waiting for the bus to arrive, Carr was approached by an individual who grabbed her by the buttocks.
If that wasn’t enough, Carr said that the individual kept giggling while looking intensely at her. At one point, the individual told Carr that she surely likes being touched in this manner considering she’s an American.
The Colorado powerlifter wrote in a social media post that instead of verbally confronting the individual about his gesture, she simply turned around and punched him in the face.
Enraged by the woman’s response, the individual slightly backed away while cursing her. The incident was witnessed by a couple who was strolling on the other side of the street.
Carr said that the man was probably preparing to attack her after being punched when the couple started yelling at him to mind his own business. The individual left after a couple of minute of intense staring.
The Colorado bodybuilding declared that she isn’t rather proud of the way she responded but noted that sometimes violence could not be averted.
Needless to say, the Colorado powerlifter was praised by her Instagram fans and people who read about the incident.
