Lotus (Robot/OC) swept the Tinguinha competition this weekend bringing home about 90% of all medals awarded. Even after moving up to higher weight classes, David Telfer and Jun Chong (Lotus OC) closed out the purple belt division and Tim Peterson and Evan Cathey (Lotus OC) did the same against much bigger opponents in the brown belt division. Lotus closed out 3 different brackets!!! (This means we took 1st and 2nd place!)
Congrats to all those who competed and especially to:
Tim: Gold (Evan Cathey silver in gentlemen’s agreement)
David Telfer: Gold (Jun Chong silver in gentlemen’s agreement)
David Kwon: Gold (Russel (Lotus OC) silver in gentlemen’s agreement)
Dom Hoskins: Silver
Mike Martinez who should have medaled had some people not meddled in the judging….
Timmy Hwang: Gold (Lotus OC)
