CIMAC Superleague 2018
Congratulations to all the Fighting Mavericks Team for their stellar performance at the CIMAC Superleague on Sunday 25/03/2018. 5 fighters competed and all 5 came away with medals. For some members of the team it was only their first or second time competing so it was a fantastic result.
Giorgio Visioli- Giorgio competed in the -54kg Advanced Boys. He put in a great performance in the Light Kick finishing in 3rd place and taking BRONZE, then in Light Con in which Giorgio is quickly becoming the most formidable competitor in his weight category he smashed through every opponent, totally dominating the category and taking GOLD. He also went on to take a GOLD in the points section making it 3 times on the podium.
Pierre Jamme- It was Pierre’s first time competing is a tournament and he entered in to an open belt competition so his opponents were often much more experienced- even Black belts. In the +60kg Advanced Boys Kick Low he had a straight final and took GOLD after a great performance against a much more experienced fighter. In the Light Con he fought hard and came away with Bronze- a brilliant result for a first time competing.
Mantas Burba- Mantas competed in the +75kg Intermediate Men Light Contact- he had one of the toughest categories with a lot of competitors but after battling his way through all the rounds he came away with his first GOLD at this level of competition.
Zak Mansfield- Zak is also fairly new to the competition circuit, and always shows great spirit when competing. He fought bravely in the -35kg Novice Boy category and came away with a well earned SILVER medal.
Angelica Goodey- Angelica competed in the +43kg Advanced Girls and as always demonstrated what a talented technical fighter she is. After a tough few fights she came away with a BRONZE in the Light Contact, and 4th place in the points.
