Brazilian Judo

Brazil lead this weekend's Pan American Judo Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico capturing 14 medals including 4 golds. Canada also put up a strong showing with 4 gold medals while Panamanian women's lightweight Miryam Roper captured her nation's first Pan Am gold.

The tournament, originally scheduled for April in Canada but postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, saw far fewer competitors than in past years. The women's over 78kg class could only muster a field of four participants.
