The day turned out to be a perfect one for Andre Galvão.
The leader of Atos San Diego won double gold at the 2014 Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championship, this Sunday, in Irvine, California.
Galvão first beat Alex Trans 5-1 on advantages to win the ultra-heavy division.
Then, came the open class final against Leandro lo, the other standout of the event.
Lo played guard since the very beginning and the match didn’t see much action most of the time.
With one minute left, Galvão went for it and manage to reach the side of Lo’s guard, scoring the advantage to secure the gold medal.
Lo still tried to come back in the last seconds but his attempted sweep didn’t deserve an advantage according to the refs.
To make things even better, Galvão’s 18 points were decisive for Atos JJ to outscore Alliance in the male adult teams competition, 96-94.
In the female division, Bia Mesquita ruled the category.
Mesquita won both the lightweight division and the open class.
In the category, Bia choked Fabiana Borges from the mount.
In the open class, Mesquita outscored Andressa Correa 6-1 on advantages.
