American judoka Nick Delpopolo is a 2x Olympian where he was able to finish 7th in the 2016 Olympics. He started Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu last year and was promoted to blue belt.
“Today I won double gold at the @american_grappling_federation Dallas Winter Classic! I fought in the Blue Belt 190lb (86kg) and Blue belt “Challenger” (Heavy Open weight) divisions. I probably haven’t been this nervous since I was a kid! Big thanks to @genesisjiujitsu for all their help on my ground game over the last 3 months. I had a lot of fun and I look forward to competing again soon. ”
