Commonwealth Games Trials Injury Provision Wrestle Off

February 09, 2018

A nomination for the 2018 Commonwealth Games Team is on the line today. A wrestle off will take place due to 2017 World Championship bronze medallist Justina Di Stasio’s injury withdrawal from the Commonwealth Games Trials in November 2017.

Di Stasio, of Burnaby, B.C., will first wrestle Commonwealth Games Trials runner-up Leah Ferguson, of Mackenzie, B.C. If Di Stasio wins her bout against Ferguson, she will have to defeat 2016 Olympic Champion Erica Wiebe in two matches.

The wrestle off will be livestreamed at 1:30 p.m. ET by Wrestling Canada Lutte on their Facebook page.
