Congrats to Hanette
From On the Mat January 2008:
On the Mat is pleased to announce our choice of Female Combat Athlete of the Year goes to Hanette Staack.
Hannette is our choice for her outstanding performances in submission grappling, where she won both her weight division and the absolute title at ADCC, and in BJJ she won the lighweight division (brown/black) of the Mundials.
Hannette is a absolute force of nature on the mat and was clearly the most dominant female grappler in any event she decided to enter this year. We look forward to seeing much more of her on the mat in 2008!
Previous Female Combat Athletes of the Year:
2004: Leonor “Nori” Cocco (Avellan) (sub grappling)/ Jen Locke (BJJ)
2005: Kyra Gracie
2006: Tara LaRosa
