May 22, 2013 | by | 0 Comments

College lecturer Carmel Jacob really has a hold on her students — after becoming one of Europe’s top women WRESTLERS.

Pretty Carmel, 24, works as a learning development tutor but in the evening dons a figure-hugging outfit to teach her rivals a lesson in the ring.

Carmel took up wrestling lessons when she was aged just 16 and turned professional two years later.

She is now a top wrestler with bouts across Europe while also lecturing students on health, well-being and employability at Edinburgh College in Scotland.

Carmel, of Edinburgh, said: “At work, I’m nice and helpful to people but in the ring I beat people up.

“I’m professional at work and professional in the ring but I keep both characters separate.

“I have a degree in psychology and I always wanted to get into counselling. I wanted to help people with their learning.

“Sometimes its hard to balance both my job as a lecturer and my passion for wrestling.
Obviously, there is a massive difference between both characters.

“As a wrestler I play a stereotypical bad girl, who cheats and does anything to win a fight. Being in the ring allows me to let out aggression which I would not be able to let out during the day.

“When I was growing up, I watched a lot of wrestling and always said I was going to do it one day.”

Glasgow-based wrestling promoter Michael Gilbert added: “She is one of the top three female wrestlers in Europe.”
