UBC Wrestling Club holds third annual alumni dinner

UBC’s Wrestling Club held their third annual alumni dinner on Aug. 17.  The dinner provided an opportunity for current female and male student wrestlers to meet and engage with alumni who once wrestled for the university.   

Alumnus Dr. Martin Gleave, chief scientific officer of OncoGenex, distinguished professor in UBC’s Dept. of Urological sciences and director of the Prostate Centre at Vancouver General Hospital, was this year’s keynote speaker.  He talked about how wrestling was instrumental in shaping his life, and helping him to succeed.
