Armstrong jiu-jitsu brothers Elan and Winter Breget have added to their already overflowing collection of competition hardware.
Both boys had great and tough matches, and were able to secure gold medals, at the provincial championships in Burnaby.
Elan, in Grade 7 at Len Wood Middle School, won gold in the Gi and No-Gi while Winter, 10, also won gold in No-Gi (there was no one in Winter’s Gi division due to his advanced belt at his age).
Both brothers were born with a rare condition that prevents them from sweating and releasing heat. Since turning to jiu-jitsu five years ago, both have become world champion.
Since they started competing, and counting the recent provincial championships, the Bregets have stood on the podium an amazing 98 times.
