Lee Brothers Medal At Canada Games



There is no mistaking it,  the Lee brothers Carson and Hunter continue to dominate the sport of wrestling, taking it to heights never seen before in Northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan.


You have to wonder where they find room to display all their hardware as they continue to excel on the mat in every meet they take part in.


This time the two brothers made local history becoming the first two athletes from Flin Flon to win medals at the Canada Summer games in Winnipeg.


Hunter blew away his opponent from Ontario in less than two minutes by a perfect 10-0 score to capture Gold in the 98- Kilogram category. His brother Carson picked up Silver in the 76 Kilogram category losing a close battle  6-5 to an Alberta opponent.


Flin Flon's third wrestler who competed Keelan Salamondra also had a good showing finishing  5th in the 98 Kilogram category.


Team Manitoba took 4 Wrestling medals total and helped the province with their biggest haul ever in the Summer Games finishing with 41 medals to break the old record of 35.


Hunter had this to say about the move which led to his gold medal winning performance. " Once you get the leg locked in it is usually really hard to get out of. Once it is in, the match is pretty much over. I just wanted to go out and dominate as much as I could."
