Three nights a week, the community hall in Igloolik, Nunavut, turns into a training centre for wrestling.

Marcus Angutiqjuaq, 17, is the oldest member of Igloolik's wrestling team, and was selected to join Team Nunavut for the 2014 Arctic Winter Games.

He says he took up wrestling after a friend suggested he try it. His best move is the hidden arm throw. 

He also plays about every other sport there is, but he doesn't only excel in athletic activities.

"He volunteers in the community and he's very active in extra-curriculars at school," says teacher Larissa MacDonald.

MacDonald says if all goes well, Angutiqjuaq​ will graduate high school in the spring.

Angutiqjuaq is not the first wrestler from Igloolik to go to the Arctic Winter Games. The club has a history of producing great young athletes.

Though coach Alex Arnatsiaq never went to the Arctic Winter Games, he did compete at the wrestling nationals and at the North American Indigenous Games.

"We're achieving," says Arnatsiaq. "We're getting more and more people going and he'll do great like the rest of the wrestlers that have gone."
