We head North of the Border for Episode 226 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast where we'll chat with Vang Ioannides and Tamara Medwidsky about the Canadian Wrestling Team Trials that were held in Strathcona County in Alberta.
Having never covered a true Canadian wrestling event, this was on my wrestling bucket list and the staff and Wrestling Canada Lutte were great in their hospitality and giving me some access I wasn't expecting upon my arrival into Alberta.
Ioannides is the Associate AD at the University of Alberta while Medwidsky is the Executive Director of Wrestling Canada Lutte and both answer some questions we in the states might have about how they do things “up there.”
Tremendous performances all around and big thanks to Andy Ross from the Alberta Amateur Wrestling Association and 49Northwrestling.com for all his help and knowledge from the event.
