11 Gold Medals Coming Home to Upstream after US Grappling Richmond


With only nine competitors from Upstream competing at US Grappling Richmond, the team still managed to bring home 11 gold medals. All of our female competitors took gold in all their divisions, a first time competitor took double gold, and two of our blue belts were able to close out the absolute division after winning gold in their weight classes. It was an amazing display of teamwork and support as those not competing scrambled around the venue to help their teammates. Thank you Upstream, you impress us every day!

Thank you to CAM Photos and Design for the amazing photographs as always!

We had a great showing of skill, heart and grit this weekend at US Grappling Richmond. The team took home four gold, four silver and two bronze medals in both adult and kids' gi and no gi divisions. They have all been training hard and their results show it. It was inspiring to see how everyone supported their teammates and could share in all aspects of the experience. On to the next one!
