Igali completes Canadian sweep

Daniel Igali completed a clean sweep of gold for Canada in Sunday's wrestling finals when he won the 74kg category with a 10-0 whitewash of Sunday Opiah.

Nigerian-born Igali, who has 20 brothers and sisters, also won gold at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, and carried the Canadian flag at the opening ceremony.

The 28-year-old followed up golds for Guivi Sissaouri and Dean Schmeichel earlier in the evening.
