The 2015 Rio Winter Open wrapped up this Sunday in Brazil.

Erberth Santos and Barbara Gomes were the standouts in the adult black belt division.

Santos beat Jaime Canuto for the open class gold medal and Pedro Moura for the superheavy title.

After receiving his medals at the podium, he told GRACIEMAG’s Marcelo Dunlop about his feeling during the weekend: “It’s bad to be booed. The crowd was rooting for my opponents but that’s ok. I have a dream of becoming a big champion. I haven’t visited my mother in the last eight months and I haven’t seen my son for six months. I came here alone once my coach couldn’t make it. I won’t let a few boos from the crowd take me off of my course.”

Barbara came back from a defeat to Leanna Dittrich in the middleweight division to beat Fabiana Santos for the absolute gold.
