Was Treko representing Australia? Because I thought Talgat won the under 76kg division?

taken from http://www.allbjjnews.com/story.php?title=world-pro-jj-cup-winners-list

The champions of the five black belt categories at the World Pro JJ Cuphave been defined. The finals are over in done in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Under 65kg




In the third meeting between the two, Rafael Mendes finally managed to overcome three-time world champion Rubens Charles. In a back-and-forth final, the Ramon Lemos student, from Rio Claro, managed a takedown with 10 seconds left till the end and took gold with a score of 6 to 4. “In the two fights I lost, I played defense and this time I went on the attack,” Rafael said in summing up his strategy.

Under 75kg





In a same-academy final, there wasn’t much action. The decision to allow two teammates to face each other in the final didn’t favor combativeness. Michael Langhi and Marcelo Garcia had a monotonous match that ended 0 to 0 even in advantage points. The ref handed it to Langhi, who played guard the whole time. Garcia was visibly put off by the outcome.


Under 85kg






Tarsis Humphreys was the bane of the Estima family in Abu Dhabi. In the absolute, he overcame Braulio and at weight beat Victor. In the final, a sweep concluded the category. “Victor has a dangerous guard, always on the attack. I played my game well, I managed to sweep and not mess up, since in six minutes there’s no coming back,” assessed Tarsis, between laughing fits.

Under 95kg






Another of the evening’s most hard-nosed was Rodolfo Vieira, the black belt hunter. First he beat up Braulio in the semifinal and in the decisive match he left no room for Antonio Peinado to work. In a hotly-disputed match, the threats of passing guard guaranteed three advantages and a gold medal for the brown belt. “I suffered an injury just two weeks ago and even I didn’t believe I had a chance, but with the support of my family and partners from GFT, I did it,” celebrated Rudolf.

Over 95kg






There was no revenge. In the sequel to the final of the Brazilian qualifiers, in March, Alexandre de Souza once again got the best of Gabriel Vella, a sweep at the start followed by two near mounts in quick succession paid out in two points and two advantages. Vella reciprocated with a sweep, but it was too little too late to turn the tables.

The World Pro JJ Cup had a gala night this Saturday. Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan paid a visit to the Zayed Sport City Tennis Court and celebrated from the stands, most vocal after the victory of Yahya Mansoor, a soldier from the UAE army, who snatched gold against Egyptian Tarek Mattar.

Yeah not sure what was going on. There were guys there competing for Australia who did not qualify. Sad when this sort of thing goes on for the guys who worked for the shot.

Here are the brackets.

I could be wrong but I thought the comp is open to anyone who wish to enter at their own expense.

The winners of the regional qualifiers got all expenses paid.

yes, u pay to enter, but of course, u gotta pay for all the travel expenses as well.
would u have paid the $3k plus that it probably would have cost to enter? thats a lot of cheddar for what is essentially a 5 min roll

Did Treko and Thiago pay for their tickets? Seems like a co-incidence that an organiser was there, plus a student of an organiser.

im not sure what conspiracy theory ur trying to put forward, but unless paulo, adcc, an airline company, a hotel or motel business and associated restaurants, etc were all in cahoots, then i think it would be safe to suggest that treko and thiago paid for their trip in some way to emirates

Not a consipiracy theory Wal, just wondering if, in return for organising the event, they were gifted with a ticket each. And if so, there's nothing wrong with it, good on them.
