BJJ: Tim Spriggs’s swift bow-and-arrow at the Washington Open

Share it

Spriggs attacks to bag the gold medal.

Ending last weekend in the American capital, the Washington Summer Open had multiple world champions fighting in the men’s brackets, but it was Tim Spriggs who stole the scene with a quick submission.

In the heavyweight division, Spriggs came across Grafton Skaggs. Without wasting any time, Spriggs pulled guard and swept. From the top, he bullfighted to pass; reached the side to score three points; passed to the opposite side with a knee on the belly, scoring two more; and right after that, sought the collar to choke. Unable to choke his opponent from the top, he pulled him to the classic bow-and-arrow position, from which the tightness proved too much for Skaggs.

Later the same day, Spriggs closed out the absolute with Mahamed Aly, making it a double-gold campaign. Below, check out the match and the complete results.
