Um parque de diversões agita a região de Barcelona onde está situado o hotel dos atletas do ADCC 2009. Os barcelonenses lotam o local e se divertem na roda gigante, no bate-bate, no bungee junping invertido, que promete sensações extremas. E comem. Comem muitos churros, cachorros quentes e maçãs do amor. Por mais que procure, o Blog não acha nenhum atleta entre as milhares de pessoas que curtem a noite de quinta-feira.

Uma volta na Monumental garante bela vista da orla

Espalhados pelo saguão do hotel Hilton Diagonal Mar, os atletas do ADCC 2009 lutam contra o sono para igualar o fuso horáro. Marcelo Garcia e a esposa Tatiana estão tranquilos: “Agora é só esperar”, sorri o mineiro, antes de ser mais uma vez assediado por uma série de fãs japoneses.

O bate-bate (ou autochoque)

Rafael Mendes e André Galvão saem para comer no centro comercial em frenbte ao hotel, onde a organização tem um convênio com um restaurante de frutos do mar. A estrela da Atos JJ, que veio à Espanha sem nnhum companheiro de equipe (fora Galvão), ainda está dois quilos acima do peso. Já André está tranquilo: “Estou apenas 800 gramas acima”, revela.

Marcelinho tenta driblar o sono no saguão

No jantar, encontram os irmãos Xande e Saulo Ribeiro. O segundo é só sorrisos e brinca com o fato de estar inscrito entre os gigantes de mais de 99kg. Com o prato já vazio, Saulo ri: “Já disputei todas as categorias, tenho um título até 88kg e outro até 99kg, agora resolvi tentar acima de 99kg. Já lutei em todas as divisões, menos até 66kg, até porque essa é do Royler”.

Saulo, Kid Peligro e Xande relaxam após o jantar

Quem também chega para comer é Kron Gracie. Acompanhado apenas de um amigo que não larga o telefone e discute com algém em uma lingua inintelegível, o filho de Rickson admite: “Já lutei umas competições sem kimono, mas essa vai ser a primeira de verdade” reconhece, com o semblante tranquilo. E os adversários, Kron? Difíceis? “Se não fosse, não seria uma competição importante como é”.

Kron, no peso, espera a comida chegar

De volta ao saguão do hotel. Robert Drysdale e Ronaldo Jacaré estão lado a lado, mas não conversam. O réptil é direto quando perguntado sobre a vez em que os dois já foram da mesma equipe: “Eu treinava em Manaus e ele em São Paulo. Eramos do mesmo time, mas não da mesma equipe. Nunca treinamos juntos”.

Jacaré pronto para a superluta

Guess who just reappeared in the ADCC under 99kg division at the last minute? Ricco Rodriguez, over 99kg champion in 1998.

- Kyra Gracie is out of the ADCC due to injury. Her absence is likely reason for Bianca Andrade being called up at the last moment.

- Just now the event’s organizers announced three more competitors. To round out the under 99kg category, Sweden’s Ilir Latifi and Japan’s Yoshiyuki Nakahashi were called up. Also invited was Poland’s Tomasz Szczerek, for the under 88kg category.

- Five-time Jiu-Jitsu world champion Bianca Andrade was invited to participate at ADCC 2009. He will enter the under 60kg category. The organization hasn’t announced which athlete she will take the place of.

- Among the men, longboarder Joel Tudor, a Rodrigo Medeiros student, was invited to participate in the under 66kg category. He takes the place of Urijah Faber.

- Just as a reminder, Tudor just won the American Nationals. He beat none other than ADCC under 66kg champion Rani Yahya in the final.
