Texas BJJ Reps Bring Back a Plethora of Medals from 2013 IBJJF Las Vegas Open
LAS VEGAS, NV, August 11, 2013 – They say “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” and we usually honor that except for cases where BJJ gold medals are concerned. Then you’re supposed to run back and tell everybody so that’s what we’re doing now after a flock of Texans traveled to Sin City to partake in the 2013 IBJJF Las Vegas Summer Open (official: Vegas Summer International Open IBJJF Championship).
Check out the list of medalists below, mostly as reported to us by our Texas BJJ Community at large via our Official TXMMA Facebook Page.
Surely we’ll miss some notable performances but feel free chime in via the comments section and we’ll add them in as we get them.
Great job representing as always, Texas BJJ competitors!
