Phillip Barreiro is one of two Barreiro brothers who will represent Team Canada at the 2018 World Championships in Greco-Roman. Barreiro, from Akwesasne, Quebec, represents the Tristar Wrestling Club. He earned his spot at Worlds by winning gold at the 2018 Canadian Championships in the Greco-Roman 87 kg weight class. This year’s worlds will not be Barreiro’s first time representing Canada internationally. He finished fifth at the 2018 Pan American Championships in the 87 kg weight class. One of Barreiro’s goals is to represent his Mohawk people and the entire indigenous community at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo and to encourage young indigenous athletes to pursue sport.
