Wrestlers Look to Carry on Canadian Success in Rio

Motivated and looking to carry on the 2016 Team Canada trend of strong Canadian women winning medals in Rio, the first three Canadian wrestlers from Canada’s #6Pack; Jasmine Mian (48KG), Michelle Fazzari (58KG) and Dori Yeats (69KG) will hit the mat on Wednesday in Rio for the Women’s Wrestling competition.

In early March 2016 at the Pan Am qualifier in Frisco, Texas, Canada became the first country to qualify entries in all six women’s Olympic weight classes.
