Best Female Team - Caloundra Open BJJ Competition
The QBJJC Caloundra Open was held over the weekend on the Sunshine Coast and Galeb Brothers Yatala had three competitors representing the team.
It was another great event with some awesome BJJ matches throughout the day. Our three female competitors Saphire, Andrea & Kenani took to the mat and displayed some amazing jiu jitsu.
Kenani Mangakahia: Double Gold (Gi & No Gi)
Saphire Morgan: Gold (No Gi) + Bronze (Gi)
Andrea Mangakahia: Silver (Gi)
Overall: Best Female Team
Kenani took double gold in gi and no gi after an excellent display of jiu jitsu. With a total of 3 matches for the day: 2 submission and 1 points win with zero points scored against her!
Saphire took bronze in her gi division, but came back and won gold in the no gi after 2 wins with 1 submission victory. A beautiful display of jiu jitsu with her pressure passing leading to submission.
Andrea had no matches in her weight division, so she was moved up 2 weight divisions, a +12kg difference. However, that didn't stop her from competing and after 2 hard fought matches, Dre claimed silver. An amazing performance considering the weight difference.
Overall, the Galeb Brothers BJJ team claimed Best Female team for the event, with the help from blue belt competitor Kayti Da Silva from Galeb Brothers Gold Coast who won double gold in her gi & no gi divisions.
A great day with some amazing results from the entire Galeb Brothers association. Congratulations to all competitors and thank you to our friends and families who show up to support the team.
