Reason: Began wrestling at age 14 (makeachamp.com, 04 Jul 2015), when introduced to the sport by a friend, but struggled at first. "I was just terrible. I don't know if I was just shy, or too nice and didn't want to hurt anyone, but I would just get beat up every time." (cbc.ca/news/canada/sudbury, June 2015)
Additional information

WEIGHT
Having won the silver medal in the men's freestyle 96kg at the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games, he moved up a weight class for Glasgow 2014 and went one better, picking up gold in the 125kg. "I was always around 106 kilograms. It was just the choice not to cut weight any more. I was wrestling well at either weight class, but this one just fit me better. Now I can just focus on the mental aspect." (guelphmercury.com, 27 Jun 2014)


DUAL DISCIPLINE
A three-time world championship team member, Jarvis has made six appearances at the Pan American Championships, winning six medals, including bronzes in the freestyle and Greco-Roman disciplines in 2011. Wrestling at 125kg, he picked up a silver medal at the Pan American Games in Toronto in 2015. (olympic.ca, 6 Mar 2016)


FUNDRAISING
His hometown of Elliot Lake raised funds through methods such as hot dog sales, so JARVIS could train full-time before competing at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. "I’m a heavyweight. My grocery bill is phenomenal." (ca.sports.yahoo.com, 6 Aug 2016)
