APRIL 28, 2018 Abu Dhabi – United Arab Emirates housed the final day of competition for the UAE Jiu Jitsu Federation’s World Pro, one of the biggest grappling tournaments on this sport’s international circuit.

The “only two athletes of the same nationality” rule imposed by this event, which does not allow two competitors from the same country to meet in the finals, resulted in one of the most diverse adult black belt podiums in an event of this magnitude. Where we would usually see a medal tally overwhelmingly dominated by Brazilian and US athletes, we saw instead high numbers of European challengers in both the female and male divisions.

From all this European talent on deck today, two names stood out the most. That of Espen Mathiesen who had an absolutely flawless tournament in arguably the toughest bracket of the entire event, and brown belt Amal Amjahid of Belgium who has an incredible future ahead of her.

Other very positive performances by the European Squad belonged to Ffion Davies of Wales, who had an incredible run being stopped on the final by Bianca Basilio in a razor sharp close match decided by the referees. Also Adam Wardzinski and Marta Szarecka of Poland (2nd Place) as well as Serena Gabrielli (Italy 3rd), Nelton Pontes (Portugal 4th), Thomas Halpin (Ireland 4th), Charlotte Von Baumgarten (4th Germany) and Ane Svendsen (4th Norway).
