Robin wasnt able to submit his second opponent either but fought very well.
The revelation of the day came from our friend Gustavo who came out strong in his weight class and outplayed his opponent with a vicious half guard that brought enough points for victory. Gustavo took silver as his first opponent never showed up. His finale was against a stronger guy who scored two points and controlled the rest of the fight. In the absolute, Gustavo did it again, holding the distance against a larger opponent and introducing him to his aggressive half guard. His second fight was against a purple belt weighing a good 30+ kilos extra dan him. He got choked halfway through the fight.
Congratulations to all of the guys for putting up nice fights and representing the academy so well.
