Fighter goes in search of another great career title in the USA
At 32, the athlete Glauco Gominha has been following a successful path outside the country. Currently in Florida, where he trains with several American Top Team beasts, and in the branch of the team led by athlete Rafael Rebello in the city of Deerfield Beach. A brown belt, the fighter is preparing for another big career tournament when he dispute the Orlando Summer on July 28 in Florida:
‘I’ve been working hard day by day’, both in the physical part and in the technical part, because I am coming back from injury. I have been advised by the great physical trainer Ítalo Villardo, focusing on the work of stabilization, strength and muscle explosion. I have also been training with my ATT team (Rafael Rebello) and specific, dynamic and very strong training aimed at competition with the master Alexandre Pulga and his Elite Force team.’
Like every athlete who dreams of a greater appreciation of the sport, Glauco Gominha has been searching for a place in the sun outside the country, working on North American soil. With many titles won in his career, the natural fighter from Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais conquered the gold in the World Cup’s for the CBJJE. Despite the achievements, the athlete still suffers from the lack of support, which he believes is still small compared to other sports:
‘The investment of the companies is still low, since many companies need to work in partnerships with the athletes, in order to obtain in a correct way the return of the investment made with the same and the sport’.
In addition to the world title already mentioned, among the main achievements the fighter has in his career are the Bronze at the IBJJF World Championship, and the Pan American and Miami Fall titles, both organized by the same organization. Top 20 world by the IBJJF International Ranking in 2017, the fighter has established himself as one of the leading brown belt currently performing in Florida.
Asked about the advantage that a brand can have when investing in a high level athlete, the fighter scored a few points, and valued the fact of acting in major events of the modality by the United States:
‘I believe that the brand needs to analyze the athlete who most identifies with his brand, being through his daily habits, lifestyle, clothing and positioning either inside or outside the mat, once once the fighter becomes a representative of his brand, everyone will identify your brand through the athlete. The high-performance professional athlete is a showcase without limits to their sponsors, living in the USA, the visibility is even greater, since there are events of great international expression that greatly value the athletes.’
After competing in Olando Summer, Glauco Gominha should return to the attention for the World Master. Main tournament category, the event will bring together some of the best Jiu-Jitsu fighters on the planet between August 21 and 24 in the city of Las Vegas, Nevada.
