Another athlete to drop out of the October 19-20 event in Beijing, China, is Jeff Monson. He made his name in the very first event in 1999 in Abu Dhabi.
Since his first gold at the 99 event he went on to win four more medals in the following events including one other gold medal. Unfortunately “The Snowman” will be missing his chance for yet another medal at this year’s event.
The ADCC committee is currently working towards finding a replacement. The over 99kg division already holds athletes such as Marcus Almeida Buchecha, Bernardo Faria, Alexander Trans, and the champion Vinny Pezao.
Stay tuned for more follow-up information about the 2013 ADCC event in Beijing, China.
