2019 Senior Canadian Championship Results
SASKATOON – Erica Wiebe held Justina Di Stasio scoreless in their first match since Di Stasio was crowned world champion.
Wiebe, a 2016 Olympic Champion, defeated Di Stasio, 2018 World Champion, 3-0 in the 76 kg final at the Senior Canadian Championships in Saskatoon.
“Justina is a formidable competitor, and she’s an awesome person and awesome wrestler, so it makes me better every day,” said Wiebe. “My year before Rio was a rollercoaster, so I’m ready for whatever 2019 has.”
On the men’s side, Jarvis continued his heavyweight dominance with another Canadian title at 125 kg. He has captured titles every year since 2013.
“It hasn’t gotten easier; these kids are tough. In my mind, heavyweight is the toughest weight-class in Canada,” said Jarvis. “This nationals is a huge stepping stone, towards 2020.”
Alex Moore won the Outstanding Male Wrestler of the Tournament after winning all three of his matches at 86 kg without a point scored against.
Diana Weicker won the 53 kg title and will be looking to build off her success in 2018, where she won Commonwealth Games gold and World Championship bronze.
Brock Wrestling Club swept the team titles, and Ontario took both the men and women’s provincial titles.
Earlier in the evening, Nick Cipriano and Dale Clancy were inducted into Wrestling Canada Lutte’s Hall of Fame as builders. Carson Lee was also awarded his 2018 Cadet World Championship bronze medal, after having been upgraded from fifth due to a doping infraction.
