Quest For Gold Recipient for 2014
In 1992 Wrestling Canada Lutte (formerly the Canadian Amateur Wrestling Association) established the Quest for Gold Fund to recognize the podium achievements of its senior wrestlers at the World Championships and Olympic Games. Since its inception the Quest for Gold Fund has awarded over $142,000 in recognition grants to athletes for forty-three (43) medal performances.
This year, one Canadian wrestler reached the podium at the 2014 Senior World Championships in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Jillian Gallays (Saskatoon Wrestling Club) won a bronze medal at 53 kg and will receive an award of $2,000.
Congratulations to this year’s medal winner and thanks to the donors of the Quest for Gold program for the continued support of this valuable recognition program that supports our top performing athletes.
