Temengil Headline Field at Oceania Wrestling Championships
Multiple-time Olympian Florian TEMENGIL (PLW) will be looking to add another Oceania gold medal to his collection. He has been a dominant force at the Oceania Wrestling Championships, winning 10 gold medals since 2011. Temengil competed in his first Olympics in 2008 in Beijing, and his second last summer in Rio de Janeiro. He served as the flag bearer for Palau during the Parade of Nations. Temengil will also compete in the Greco-Roman competition this weekend.
Commonwealth Games bronze medalist Sam BELKIN (NZL), competing at 97kg, will be in search of his third freestyle gold medal at the Oceania Wrestling Championships at the senior level. His road to the title will likely include another meeting with Christopher GALBRAITH-CLARK (AUS), a silver medalist last year in freestyle and gold medalist in Greco-Roman.
Ethan AGUIGUI (GUM) at 57kg, Jarvis Sadam Blesam TARKONG (PLW) at 65kg, Tumaui NORDMANN (PYF) at 74kg and Toby FITZPATRICK (NZL) at 86kg are also looking to repeat as gold medalists in the freestyle competition.
The Greco-Roman senior competition includes 45 competitors. The aforementioned Galbraith-Clark (AUS) has won Greco-Roman titles in each of the past two years at 98kg. Another returning champion entered in the Greco-Roman competition is Caylen GREENWOOD (NZL) at 80kg.
