UNDER FILA WRESTLING - MMA - first time (Imagine asiatic gi in wrestling - NO COMMENT)
As initially expected, the American team won most of the gold medals with 8 out of the 18 categories. The biggest surprise of the event came with the rise of the French team that brought 5 gold medals home. The French success can be attributed to the amazing performance of the two female athletes who domitated both the No-Gi and Gi competitions; Romy Ruyseen in 72kg and Laurence Fouillat in 55kg who also received an award for the "Best Submission". As per the team ranking, the best three teams in No-Gi and Gi divisions were 1) USA, 2) France, 3) Canada.
The new rules made a lot of difference in the competition as they provided the spectators with fast paced fights and a high submission rate. The complete results (No-Gi and Gi) can be consulted on the Championship official website, as well as the pictures of the event and the videos that will soon be available for free.
