Last Saturday, 26th of May, the CBJJO realised the Brazilian Cup 2007 in Laranjeiras, Rio de Janeiro. The event had a record number of participants, with athletes coming from all parts of Brasil, and once again our athletes brought good results.
Luiz Eduardo, from RGC Buzios, got 2 bronze medals, in both divisions he competed in. He obtained his results in the adult purple belt light weight (-73kg) and in the Open weight under 75kg, where the organisers pay money prizes. Luiz, whose nickname is “Dentinho” (meaning Small Tooth) is only 20 years old and will train hard focus on the World Cup, that happens in Rio de Janeiro in the end of July.
Congratulations, Dentinho, we are looking forward to see you winning the gold next time. Luiz is the one on the far right of the picture below.
