VANIER WRESTLER WINS SILVER AT NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
to Serguei Guevorkian for placing second in the 2004 Canadian
Wrestling Junior Championships held in March of this year. Sergei's
win was for the 19-20 year old division. Sergei's accomplishment
is all the greater since in these championships he faced 13 of
the best wrestlers in his division in Canada. He credits his win
to his determination and perseverance and to the guidance of his
coach, (and Vanier teacher) Viktor Zilberman
Sergei, arrived in
Canada in 2002 from Moscow, Russia. Of Armenian descent, Serguei
first joined Vanier's Language School and then gained admission
