Hello Wrestling Community,
It is important that all BCWA members and stakeholders are aware that due to provincial guidelines surrounding COVID-19, “No Wrestling” is permitted in BC until further notice.
BCWA is in the process of evaluating our options with regards to “Return to Wrestling” and will be providing a ”Return to Play Plan” when it is authorized as safe and approved by the BCWA Board of Directors. Safety for everyone is our top priority.
Members are welcome to participate in activities that follow the policies and guidelines of the Provincial Health Officer, local Municipalities, and operating facilities.
Be assured that we are working with all stakeholders to ensure a safe and timely return to wrestling during these unprecedented circumstances.
If you have any questions or need further clarification please contact the BCWA office. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated.
"OTTAWA – Linda Morais and Darthe Capellan have been awarded the titles of 2019 Female and Male Senior Wrestlers of the Year.
In September, Morais, of Tecumseh, Ont., became World Champion at 59 kg.
Morais, who trains with the Montreal Wrestling Club, defeated Liubov Ovcharova of Russia in the gold medal match with a pin to claim victory.
Ovcharova appeared to be in control of the match and held a 6-1 lead at the two-minute mark. Morais, 26, scored on an exposure and was able to secure the victory by fall.
Capellan, 24, captured a bronze medal at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru in August. In the 57 kg bronze medal match Capellan secured a spot on the podium with an 8-7 win over Colombia’s Oscar Tigreros.
At the Senior World Championships, Capellan, of the Burnaby Mountain Wrestling Club, lost to Serbian Stevan Micic 11-1 in the 57 kg 1/8 final. In the 1/16 final, he took down Junjun Asebias of Micronesia by technical superiority 11-0.
In the past, the Wrestler of the Year awards are presenting at the Canadian Championships the following year. Due to safety concerns surrounding the spread of the COVID-19 virus, both Canadian Championship events were cancelled.
On Friday, Ana Godinez and Hunter Lee were awarded Junior Wrestler of the Year titles, and Serena Di Benedetto and Ismail Ayyoub were named Cadet Wrestlers of the Year on Thursday."
