The 30-year-old from Hamilton positioned her leg awkwardly early in Saturday's gold-medal match in the 62-kilogram class against defending champion Aminat Adeniyi. The weight of the attacking Nigerian didn't help.

Fazzari remained down, pounding the mat in obvious pain. Oblivious, Adeniyi wildly celebrated her gold medal, jumping into her coach's arms and running around with the Nigerian flag as the Canadian received medical attention to her right knee.

GOLD COAST, Australia – Heading into the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, Team Canada wrestling had captured more “I knew it was going to be a battle and I didn’t keep as disciplined as I should have,” said MacDonald. “She’s a good competitor as she’s number two in the world right now.

The 2018 Canadian team are well aware of personal goals and growing the proud legacy. The twelve wrestlers just arrived in the 2018 athletes’ village in order to avoid distractions, and are clear that going for gold in Australia is part of a larger plan.

Fazzari, a bronze medallist at the 2017 world championships, had to be helped backstage. She came out to the medal ceremony on crutches with a giant wrapping on the knee. Backstage at the Carrara Sports Arena, a wheelchair awaited.

"It just exploded," Fazzari said of her knee. "I don't know exactly what happened yet and I'll just wait for our medical team to diagnose it."

Jessica MacDonald (50 kilograms) and Korey Jarvis (125-plus) also won silver, bringing the wrestling team's medal count to 10 (two golds, five silver, three bronze).

Canada won 12 medals (7-2-3) four years ago at the games in Glasgow.

"Overall this was not our best performance," said head coach Tonya Verbeek, a three-time Olympic medallist and silver medal-winner at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. "We had some really great performances and some good wins but we also had some losses there that made us realize we need to be better in certain positions.

Corrections will hopefully be made in time for the world championships in Budapest in October.

"This was not our peak performance and we knew that coming in," said Verbeek.

Earlier, Erica Wiebe of Stittsville, Ont., who trains out of Calgary, defended her 76-kilogram crown and Diana Weicker, a mother of two and part-time pediatrics nurse at a St Catharines, Ont., hospital, turned heads by winning the 53-kilogram class.

Fazzari, MacDonald and Jarvis wrestled in a round-robin format given there were not enough athletes in their weight class to form a bracket.

Fazzari had beaten opponents from New Zealand, India and Cameroon before her knee buckled. The knee had been an issue before and she had not competed since the fall.

"It's been a battle for her to get healthy ... We hope that's not as bad as we think at this moment and hope that she gets back on her feet and health again," Verbeek said of the injury.
