U.S. women Chun, Bernard and Campbell win golds at Canada Cup



GUELPH, Canada - Three members of the U.S. women's team claimed gold medals at the Canada Cup held on the 4th of July.

Capturing gold medals were 2008 Olympians Clarissa Chun (Colorado Springs, Colo./Sunkist Kids) at 48 kg/105.5 lbs. and Ali Bernard (New Ulm, Minn./Gator WC) at 72 kg/158.5 lbs.), along with 2008 U.S. Nationals champion Kelsey Campbell (Milwaukie, Ore./Sunkist Kids) at 59 kg/130 lbs.

The U.S. Senior World Team and the U.S. Junior World Team competed at the Canada Cup in preparation for World Championships competition later in the summer.

Chun was a 2008 World champion at her weight class, and placed fifth at the 2008 Olympic Games. She pinned Canada's Lindsay Rushton in the gold-medal finals. Chun won four matches on the way to her title.

Bernard was also fifth at the 2008 Olympic Games. She pinned all three of her opponents at the Canada Cup, including Maria Muller of Germany in the finals.

Campbell faced 2009 U.S. World Team member Deanna Rix (Colorado Springs, Colo./New York AC) in the finals, and won the match. Rix had stopped Campbell in the best-of-three championship series finals at the World Team Trials on May 31.

Rix was one of three U.S. women to win silver medals, joined by 2009 U.S. Nationals champions Helen Maroulis (Rockville, Md./New York AC) at 55 kg/121 lbs. and Elena Pirozkhova (Colorado Springs, Colo./Gator WC) at 67 kg/147.5 lbs.

Maroulis, who will be competing in the Junior World Championships for the second straight year, won her first two bouts before falling to Jill Gallays of Canada in the finals.

Pirozkhova, who is on her second straight U.S. Senior World Team, wrestled up one weight class from her normal 63 kg/138.75 lbs. She opened with two wins, then was beaten by 2008 World champion and four-time World finalist Martine Dugrenier of Canada in the finals.

The U.S. had six bronze medalists, two in women's freestyle and four in men's freestyle.

The women's freestyle bronze medalists were 2009 Junior World Team member C.C. Weber (Goodrich, Mich./Sunkist Kids) at 48 kg/105.5 lbs. and 2009 Senior World Team member Adeline Gray (Denver, Colo./New York AC) at 67 kg/147.5 lbs.

Weber finished with a 5-1 record in the tournament. Her only loss came in the second round to American Alyssa Lampe, who Weber came back to defeat in the bronze-medal match.

Gray, the 2008 Junior World champion, had a 3-1 record in the tournament. Her only loss came in the second match to World champion Dugrenier. She pinned Vanessa Wilson of Canada to claim her bronze medals.

Claiming bronze medals in the men's competition were Americans Steven Keith (Longwood, N.Y./New York AC) at 55 kg/121 lbs., Anthony Vales, (South Windsor, Conn./CYCM) at 60 kg/132 lbs., Andrew Campolattano (Bound Brook, N.J./New York AC) at 84 kg/185 lbs. and Mike Tamillow (Colorado Springs, Colo./New York AC) at 96 kg/211.5 lbs.)

Keith, who was a high school star on Long Island, lost his first match and came back with three straight wins in the consolation rounds. He beat Jake Hergenhein of Canada for the bronze medal.

Vales, a star from Connecticut, also had a first round loss but won four in a row for his bronze medal. He beat Cruiz Manning of Canada in the bronze-medal bout.

Campolattano, a three-time Cadet National champion and state champion from New Jersey, had a 5-1 record in the tournament. His only loss came to eventual winner Tamerlan Tagiev of Russia. He defeated American Terry Madden in the bronze-medal match.

Tamillow fell in his opening bout to eventual champion Khetag Pliev of Canada, then came back with four straight wins. He pinned Canada's Misha Kurkunov in the bronze-medal bout.
