"The one that stood out the most may very well have been Leandro Lo, but Leandro’s deed (gold at middleweight and silver at the absolute) was somewhat over shadowed by the fact that this year’s tournament had four non Brazilian gold medallists at the men’s adult black belt division and 6 finalists (5 of those Americans). A sign of good things to come for both the American and European crowd, who saw JT Torres, Keenan Cornelius, Gianni Grippo (Grippo with a by from his team mate Vitor Genovesi) and Alexander Trans dominate their divisions in great fashion."
I've short listed the division winners in order of weight class for those who don't have the time to read through the bracket results.
I'll be watching the matches over the coming days and posting some thoughts et cetera.
Absolute - Bernardo Faria
