Reliv International Athlete Greg James Wins Gold Medal at Miami Jiu-Jitsu Competition

Posted on November 15, 2010 by ahaarmann

Reliv International-sponsored athlete Greg James recently won a Gold Medal at the Miami International Open jiu-jitsu championship in Miami, Fla.

This represents James’ first Gold Medal of the year after having won two Silver Medals in previous tournaments this year.

James won his medal in the Brown Belt Senior Heavyweight Division, which is the 93 kilogram class (approximately 205 pounds). James lives and trains in Omaha along with a group of competitors who went to Miami under the Team Reliv banner.

Ryan Montgomery, Reliv’s executive vice president, worldwide sales, said, “Greg has set a goal of competing on the U.S. Olympic jiu-jitsu team for the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil, and this medal gets him one step closer. He’s a world-class athlete and we couldn’t be prouder that he relies on Reliv products as a key part of his training regimen.”

James is a retired U.S. Navy Petty Officer who has served in three wars.  He was injured in Iraq in 2003. Currently, he teaches martial arts to members of the Air Force, Marines and Navy, as well as to various law enforcement officials around the United States.  James holds Black Belts in karate, kung-fu and jiu-jitsu.

This is a great continual success story and I am excited that Reliv is sharing this.

I only wish that I had known about Reliv when I was playing volleyball. This would have saved me from hell week and the pain associated with that. For those that don’t know, hell week, usually consists of 2 practices a day each about 3 hours long. They push you and work you and by the end of the 1st day you know you are just going to be sore all week-long. I now know that if I had been taking provantage and innergize I would have been so much better off.

The good news is that I take it now when I train and run marathons and I won’t run without it!
