European 2015: Galvão, Gabi reach open class glory; other results and the best images of the finals

OfferedBy_GamenessusarAndré Galvão and Gabi Garcia are the big winners of the 2015 European championship.

They took home the gold of the adult black belt open class divisions.

Gabi confirmed her favoritism and was able to submit all her opponents.

In the final, she had to recover from a near sweep and also an attack to her neck by Mackenzie Dern, the most thrilling moment of the event.

After putting things back to normal, Gabi passed guard and got the win with a choke from side control, like she usually does.

The same crowd that seemed to be rooting for Dern, cheered Garcia in the end, recognizing her talent and supremacy in the female black belt division.

In the male open class final, Andre Galvão also had to recover to confirm his position as favorite.

Igor Silva, who had an amazing weekend, started out hot with an attack to Galvão’s foot and a sweep that put him 2-0 ahead with one advantage.

After that, Galvão worked his game plan and was able to comeback in the match.

He had the not predicted help of a rib injury suffered by Silva in a prior match, which slowed him down.

Galvão was able to sweep back, pass guard and put the knee on the belly twice to get to a 9-2 score at the moment Silva called it quits due to the pain.
