Flash Quotes – Korey Jarvis Wins Gold-Medal in 125KG Final

July 30, 2014

Korey Jarvis of Elliot Lake, ON Wins Gold in the Men’s 125kg Wrestling


On the bout:

“Feels good. I didn’t get as much offense going as what I would have wanted to, I thought I would have been able to move him a lot more, but he is a pretty big guy and pretty solid in his position, but I ended up persevering.”

On his opponent:

“When I found out earlier that Boltic had moved up weight classes, it drove me so much harder, I knew I wanted a shot at him in the final, so when he lost to Tomar it was bitter sweet, but it worked out well for me in the end.”

On his silver medal from Delhi:

“It was a tight win, but it was too long, the silver medal in Delhi haunted my dreams, glad I got the gold here.”

Thanking his family:

“All I can do is thank my family, my daughter and wife Sarah, she is the one who stays at home to take care of my daughter and if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be able to be here and do what I do.”
