Veronica Keefe won a silver medal in the CIS wrestling championship.
Keefe, who lives and trains in Montreal, was Canada’s only gold among a contingent of six wrestlers from Montreal representing Canada at the event, that also brought home three bronze medals.
This is Keefe’s second international gold in the past three months as she was also the winner at the Francophonie Games held in Nice, France, in September.
