Canada's top international tournament goes this weekend. There's a ton of prize money so lots of Americans will be there. I last attended this tournament when it was the old Clansman, and I had the pleasure of watching many of the top Russians- Farniev, Ketoev, Gaysumov, Kudukhov, etc and Americans show up. Rumor has it Henry Cejudo and Sushil Kumar are wrestling this year, and the Canadian forum is pretty excited about a possible Kumar/Garcia matchup.
It's kind of a unique format. Friday is a Carding Tournament for Canadian athletes, and several college divisions (for young athletes who aren't necessarily at the international level yet) are also contended. On Satrday the top finishers from the Carding tournament and the international competitors wrestle. At the end they have challenge matches for big money with the 60 vs 66 kg, 74 vs 84 kg, and 96 vs 120 kg champions competing.
