Morais named recipient of 2019 Quest for Gold Award
OTTAWA – Linda Morais has been awarded the Quest for Gold Award for 2019.
Wrestling Canada Lutte established the Quest for Gold fund in 1992 to recognize the athletic achievements of senior wrestlers who’ve reached the podium at the World Championships and Olympic Games. Since inauguration, over $153,000 in grants have been awarded to athletes through the Quest for Gold fund for sixty-three medal performances.
