Melqui Galvão Jiu-Jitsu Takes Home 12 Medals in Competitive Debut

Following a highly-publicized separation from Fight Sports, Melqui Galvão’s new jiu-jitsu team swept multiple divisions at the Rio Summer Open, winning twelve medals in total, per FloGrappling. The performance earned Melqui Galvão Jiu-Jitsu an overall team ranking in the top ten

It’s a promising debut for a freshly independent jiu-jitsu team, and speaks to the caliber of its young up-and-coming athletes. Though Melqui Galvão’s team is best known for the star power of fan favorites – such as Diogo “Baby Shark” Reis, Fabricio “Hokage” Andrey, and of course, Galvão’s own son, teen phenom Mica Galvão – the team took home five gold medals and seven silver, even without Mica or Baby Shark in the field.

We can next expect to see Melqui Galvão’s team at the 2023 Euros.
