While others were curling up with their valentine, wrestlers converged in Sudbury for the Ontario University finals, some 380 perilous kilometers away from our humble Toronto, to show off what eight months of sacrifice, perseverance and training looks like. I tagged along with Ryerson’s new team as well as the University of Toronto Blues to shoot the event. The three competing wrestlers from Ryerson each scored seventh, getting us lucky sevens for the first year. We’re taking this as a good sign for team growth and development for the next season!
Here is a selection of photos from the event, featuring both Rams and Blues:
