2009 Pan Jiu Jitsu Championships Day 3

Sunday was a great day for Street Sports at the Pan Americans as we delivered a variety of great performances.

Starting off the day, Daniel Rodriguez steamrolled the Brown Belt middle weight division and captured the gold medal! Winning every match by submission (with the exception for the first on points), Daniel proved he is a force to be reckoned with at brown belt now. Congratulations, Daniel!

Kane Tsay also brought home a medal at Brown Belt! Competing at lightweight, Seniors 1, Kane managed to fight off some very tough opposition in his first tournament as a brown belt to bring home the bronze. Way to go, Kane!

Ending the day on Sunday, John Rickel competed in the black belt absolutes. John fought 3 time world champ Fabio Leopoldo and took him to the end of the time period, and finally losing by points. Congrats to John for a valiant effort against a very seasoned black belt!
