Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Swift Current -

Swift Cur­rent wrestler Aleah Nickel was at a reg­u­lar City of Swift Cur­rent coun­cil meet­ing on Aug. 27 to ex­press her ap­pre­ci­a­tion to­wards coun­cil­lors and the com­mu­nity for their sup­port dur­ing her trip in July as a mem­ber of Team Canada to com­pete at the 2018 Cadet World Cham­pi­onships in Za­greb, Croa­tia. She was elim­i­nated af­ter los­ing to a wrestler from Mon­go­lia, but Nickel felt good about how she was able to con­trol the match un­til she got caught in a throw. Her par­tic­i­pa­tion in the world cham­pi­onships con­cluded a very suc­cess­ful sea­son that in­cluded pro­vin­cial and na­tional gold medals as well as a sil­ver medal at the Pan Amer­i­can Cham­pi­onship in Gu­atemala. She has al­ready started her prepa­ra­tion for the new sea­son and at­tended a train­ing camp in Van­cou­ver in early Au­gust. Pic­tured: Coun­cil­lor Bruce Deg con­grat­u­lates Aleah Nickel with her achieve­ments dur­ing the past wrestling sea­son, Aug. 27.
