Esparza nearly exploded with joy when she first learned her sport had been admitted to the London Olympics. The six-time national champion’s excitement cooled a bit when she learned the Olympic invitation came with a catch: The petite 106-pound fighter would have to gain 6 pounds to compete against bigger, stronger women.(AP Photo/Ed Andrieski, File)
