Bernardo Faria, 2013 super-heavyweight world champion of Alliance, traveled back to Brazil this week to perform a quick knee surgery. Leaving his training haven at GMA Marcelo Garcia Academy in New York City, he promised that he’d be back in no time to train for the major tournaments of 2014 like the Pan American Championship and World Championship.
Here he is with his parents and girlfriend right after his successful meniscus surgery:
On his Instagram he writes: “Im very happy that looks like everything was ok. :)”
While we hate to see our athletes down, it’s always a blessing when they heal well as planned.
He plans to return to the academy by next month.
