Finishing on a high note, multiple BC Athletes took to the mats and stood upon the podium at the 2022 Senior Canadian Wrestling Trials and Greco Roman Championships held at the University of Alberta last weekend. Within the men’s division, Burnaby Mountain Wrestling Club continued their winning streak finishing first with 68 points to be awarded with the Men’s Club Team Award. In the Greco Roman category, Rustom Wrestling Club claimed the Junior Club Award with 18 points. Recognizing the amazing triumphs of athletes across Canada, Wrestling Canada Lutte (WCL) also announced the 2021 Wrestler of the Year awards. Two athletes from BC were chosen – both recent 2022 Pan American Gold Medalists - including Ana Godinez Gonzalez and Amar Dhesi. Ana was honored with the U23 Female Athlete of the Year Award and Amar with the Senior Male athlete of the year. Overall, BC athletes succeeded in taking home six gold, three silver and five bronze medals at the Senior Championships. Well done to all!
