Congratulations to our wrestlers who competed in the Australian Cup last week with great success!  Our long-standing wrestling coach Witold Rejlich has coached many successful wrestlers, and ACT wrestlers will dominate the Australian team selected for the Junior World Championships in France this year.

Current champions Jessie May-Nel, 19, and Ben Pratt, 18, both heading to France next month, each won Gold medals at the Australian Cup in both their Junior and Senior divisions.

In total, 8 medals were won by our Erindale Centre wrestlers, with 5 Gold, 2 Silver and 1 Bronze.

This week the Chronicle newspaper wrote on the continued successes of Jessie May-Nel and Ben Pratt.  The article 'Golds propel pair to highest level' is available to read online at: http://thechronicle.realviewdigital.com/#
