koreyKorey Jarvis has been representing Canada internationally since 2007 but it was in 2014 when he earned his first victories, taking gold at the City of Sassari Tournament and the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. That was his second Commonwealth Games medal, having won silver at Delhi 2010. Jarvis competed in Greco-Roman wrestling at the 2011 Pan American Games but came up short of qualifying for the London 2012 Olympic Games in that discipline. A three-time world championship team member, Jarvis has made six appearances at the Pan American Championships, winning six medals, including bronzes in both the freestyle and Greco-Roman disciplines in 2011. He won silver in the 125kg freestyle division at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto and secured his spot in Rio with a second place finish at the continental qualifier in March 2016.
